    Truly large scale investment coming for Dublin.

    Word is from my friends in the industry that Google and LinkedIn are going even larger scale in Dublin. Google buying at least one more new or refurb block , LinkedIn leasing one. I said some days ago when the T was in California that he hadn't gone there for nothing. Several announcements followed including one I forecast re Facebook. Fascinating times we live in.

    Yes and hardly any unemployed Irish will get these jobs I suspect if Googles building in Ringsend is anything to go by., I hope I am wrong. We need local recruitment requirements so that these investments benefit the local community and lift them out of poverty.

    Any investments in Dublin will always benefit the local community, surely? Trickle-down effect and all that...

    I suppose something has to be salvaged from the Apple/Athenry debacle.

    DE can always apply. Anyone who spends as long on the net as he does is clearly a shoe-in!

    You really thought it was serious.

    That's where we are folk's Even a parody response which shows how misguided it is to just bow down to big business and give them anything they want gets taken as serious.

    What did DE write that was problematic? Bar problematic for neo liberals.
