Up to 300 jobs are coming to Nenagh in Co Tipperary.

The investment is supported by the Department of Jobs through IDA Ireland.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny said: "Having met with the CEO of First Data in May, I am delighted to warmly welcome this announcement of 300 new jobs, which is great news for Nenagh, County Tipperary and the Mid-West Region".

While Jobs Minister Richard Bruton, who met First Data in the United States on trade missions on a number of occasions, said: "Today's announcement that First Data, a world-leading technology company, is establishing a high-end facility in Nenagh, with the creation of 300 extra jobs, is a massive boost. I wish Tom and all the team every success".

Local TD and Environment Minister Alan Kelly told Newstalk Breakfast the jobs should be in place by the end of this year.
