In terms of manufacturing this industry actually accounts for 32% of Ireland's GDP.

Comparatively speaking, this dwarfs other European countries such as Germany whose manufacturing sector accounts for just 21%, while the European average is 15% total.

  • Dónal Óg Cusack - Senior Engineering Manager Digital & Automation Systems
  • Tom Keogh - CEO of Keogh's Crisps
