50 new fast food jobs

SOME 50 new jobs have been created with the opening of a branch of the Counter restaurant in Dublin city centre.

The premium burger franchise will open the new centre in Suffolk Street and is planning additional expansion in Ireland. The US company's expansion comes just a few months after it was established in Dundrum Shopping Centre.

"Opening up in the city centre was a natural extension of the success we had in Dundrum," said spokesman Ken Brown.
