US media monitoring and analytics firm PublicRelay has announced plans to set up a new office in Cavan, creating 20 jobs over the next two years. 

PublicRelay said it selected Cavan due to the strong pool of educated talent available there and the innovative nature of the town's newly opened Digital Hub where the company initially will be based. 

The project is supported by the Government through IDA Ireland.

"The educated, friendly workforce and proximity to our Dublin office make Cavan an ideal location to expand our presence in Ireland", said Eric Koefoot, CEO of PublicRelay.

"We look forward to investing further in the country and building on our strong partnership with IDA Ireland," the CEO added.
