    Well no actually.

    New investments should be brought to regions outside of Dublin.

    They can get their degree in Carlow or Tralee instead.

    Three Universities. And plenty of DTIs all within cycling distance. Plus if you get the points you get the grants.

    Then they are going to have to stop objecting to pipes, pylons, motorways. and the buildings themselves.

    You might actually have a relevant point there.

    For once.

    That is down to their education levels. A huge chunk of these are unemployable. Or at best, only capable of low skilled manual work.

    A lot has to do with intergenerational welfare.

    It would also be interesting to look at hash abuse by young people.

    Low expectations and all that.

    I have no idea what type of jobs will be available in the Google/LinkedIn expansion, they may not be highly skilled tech jobs, could be quite low level customer support type roles but will require language skills.

    I work for a multinational in the tech space, the roles that I recruit for are highly skilled in specialised tech areas, in some cases there are less than a dozen experts available worldwide.

    The candidates I am chasing have a great deal more than a basic degree, masters, PhD and years of workplace experience, internationally recognised leaders in their fields with a bevy of patents under their belts.

    However, I have been able to source all of my new hires within the EU, a broad range of nationalities, including Irish.
