An Australian tech firm is promising to bring 100 new jobs to the West of Ireland.
SiteMinder, which offers cloud computing to the hotel industry, will begin recruiting immediately.
It's opening an office in Galway today and hopes to fill all roles over the next three years.
SiteMinder's customers in this country already include the K-Club and The Connacht Hotel - the host of today's opening event.
This will be the company's fifth location, with the others based in Bangkok, Dallas, Sydney, and London.
The company has begun recruiting sales staff and customer training and support analysts.
Dai Williams, managing director for EMEA with SiteMinder commented on the announcement:
