Ninety new jobs have been announced for Dublin as the latest Central Statistics Office figures show that the rate of unemployment fell to 10.1% in February.

Cloud software company LogMeIn is to create 90 jobs at its Dublin office over the next three years. 

The company already employs 45 people at its office at Sir John Rogerson's Quay.

LogMeIn provides virtual private network services to client companies to allow them to access their files remotely.

Meanwhile, the number of people signing on the Live Register in February fell by 4,300 to stand at 355,600 on a seasonally adjusted basis. 

This is down from 450,000 shortly before Ireland entered its Troika bailout programme, which it exited a year ago.

The CSO said that the standardised unemployment rate in February 2015 was 10.1%, down from the revised figure of 10.3% in January 2015.  

It said that a total of 355,124 people were signing on the Live Register in February, down 10.8% on the same month the previous year.
