This was out on our main news stations a few days ago..www.rte.ie/news/2007/0919/jobs.htmlThey've confirmed 75 jobs, and theres rumour of even more coming. This isn't the same as the Dublin 'office' they have - this is actually Blizzard setting up the office, not outsourcing to others.Ireland is well known for its high level of education - one of the highest in the world, don't let Yonix fool you.To be honest, I'm really offended by Yonix's description. Yes, we have a few issues - any Irish person will bitch and moan about the health service, but that's very slowly being addressed. It takes time to fix it, and though we're going through an economic boom, we're still catching up with everything that there simply wasn't money to do in the 80s. Our road infrasture is finally getting the massive overhaul it needed, and yeah, though the health service is still far behind - its improving.As for salaries being much lower - our minimum wage is just over 8 euro an hour, a lot higher than for example, the US.Public transport in the cities.. yeah, its a joke, but to be honest in Cork - if you cant catch the bus you can probably walk the distance in about a half hour / hour anyway. Its a small city. :DAnd as for getting drunk in the city on the weekend.. umm.. this is Ireland, that's our social scene... what did you expect?! ;)
