Another 200 jobs for Dublin as US visit comes to an end
Software firm Workday has revealed plans to double its workforce in the capital over the next three years.
The company already employs 200 people at its European headquarters in South Dublin, which was established in 2008 following the acquisition of another firm.
Speaking about the new positions, Mr Kenny said the government has been focused on securing investment by firms in the high technology sector.
"Winning international investment in areas like the high growth technology sector is essential to our recovery plan and a testament to our exceptionally talented workforce and our business-friendly environment," he said.
The Government's trade mission to San Francisco and Palo Alto this week is part of our strategy to reinforce existing investor relationships and build new connections in the USA so that we can continue to secure new jobs and investment for Ireland," he added.
The Taoiseach has visited several global headquarters of multi-national companies which have invested in Ireland.
