The Irish Times:
Apple is to expand its presence in Cork, creating more than 500 jobs in what is being described as a “huge boost” for the country. The technology firm is expected to construct a new office block to accommodate the additional staff in the coming 18 months. Apple has based its European headquarters in Hollyhill. The technology firm employs about 2,800 people at its distribution, supply chain and back-office operation there.
Another huge boost will be in Heineken consumption when Jim Dalrymple arrives in Dublin next week.
