TODAY THE TAOISEACH is due to announce the creation of 600 jobs by 2015 at the official opening of Paddy Power’s new headquarters in Dublin.

This follows an announcement earlier in the week that Irish firm Kerry Group will create 800 jobs over the next three years within its firm and a further 400 construction jobs in the building of its new research and innovation centre in Naas, Co Kildare.

In the last month month there have been more than ten job creation announcements by various companies around the country. However the most recent figures from the Central Statistics Office showed the unemployment rate remained at 14.8 per cent in September.

We want to know what you think: Are you satisfied with the government’s progress in job creation?
