Jobs rise at foreign firms

ALMOST 80pc of jobs created by new foreign firms in the last 10 years were located in Dublin, Cork and Galway, a conference at the ESRI was told today.

With these three cities also accounting for 62pc of job gains in existing foreign firms and less than half of job losses, their share of all foreign employment rose markedly, from 49pc to 58pc, over the period.
