Facebook has announced plans which could see it create an extra 5 thousand jobs in Dublin. The social media company has acquired a long-term lease for a new campus in Ballsbridge.
The 14 acre site sits at the premises known as the Bank Centre, which is currently occupied by AIB.
Facebook will take up 870 thousand square feet of space there, allowing it to add 5 thousand employees to its workforce.
The social media company says Ireland is one of the best places in the world to be a tech company and that this long-term lease shows it's commitment to the country.
The Business Minister has welcomed the news, saying Facebook's expansion is a huge vote of confidence in Ireland.
