Three Irish companies are set to create more than 100 new jobs over the next three years.
The companies, which operate in the technology and manufacturing sectors, are based in Dublin and Galway.
Cubic Telecom, based in Dublin and specialising in global connectivity, will create more than 70 jobs over the next three years as part of a €4m injection from four investors.
VoiceSage, which specialises in automated customer service telecommunications technology, will create ten jobs over the next two years using a €1m investment.
In Galway, 34 positions will be created between now and 2016 through a €2.4m investment at Advant Medical, a manufacturing company supplying the medical devices sector.
All of the companies are receiving funding from the Government through Enterprise Ireland.
Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton said a crucial part of the Government's jobs and growth plan was to support a strong engine of Irish enterprise through companies like the ones announcing expansion today.
