More than 100 jobs are to be created at a software company's customer support centre in Cork.
Canadian company OpenText plans to expand its operations over the next two years by recruiting technical analysts with supporting language skills and senior management roles.
Minister for European Affairs and Data Protection Dara Murphy said the investment was an endorsement of the region.
"Partnerships between industry, the Government and IDA Ireland, such as is the case with OpenText, demonstrate that these relationships deliver significant long-term benefits for areas like Cork, the economy, the companies themselves and their customers," he said.
The investment, which will see a total of 105 new roles in the Cork operation, is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.
OpenText, which has its headquarters in Waterloo, Ontario, is ranked as the number one Canadian software company and has more than 100,000 customers.
