The Taoiseach said:
During my recent visit to Silicon Valley, I had the opportunity to meet with the CEO of eBay Inc to discuss their ongoing investments and to offer the Government's support for increased expansion into Ireland. This PayPal announcement further enhances Ireland's reputation as a prime location for global businesses and is a tribute to our talented and flexible workforce.
Jobs Minister Richard Bruton said:
Louise Phelan and PayPal Ireland are a standout example of a phenomenon we are seeing more and more of in recent years – an Irish operation within a multinational, under strong leadership, becoming more strategically important within global operations and winning new investment and jobs for Ireland.
