Minister for Communications, Energy & Natural Resources Eamon Ryan has announced plans to create up to 30,000 jobs over the next decade in digital and clean technology.

50 jobs are to be created in the next year followed by another 300 within three years at Irish company Intune Networks, which is building a new communications network to cut down bottlenecks in data transfer.

The Government is also planning to establish an International Content Services Centre in Dublin and a Marine Research, Test & Development Platform in Galway Bay.
