ENTERPRISE IRELAND IS announcing around 1,800 new jobs this morning. They’re to come on stream over the next three years at ‘high potential start-up’ firms.

The positions — which will be in the areas of IT, life sciences, gaming, amongst other categories — are being announced by new companies supported by the enterprise body last year.

103 firms in the ‘class of 2013′ group of start-ups received investment from Enterprise Ireland. The new jobs are at those companies, and around 20 others previously supported by the body.

There was a rise in the number of female-led start-ups last year: 41 of the firms were headed up by women — up from 16 in 2012.

Jobs Minister Richard Bruton will make the official announcement in Dublin Castle later this morning.
