In what is a huge boost for the Web2Ireland community, Facebook are setting up their International Headquarters in Ireland.

We had previously covered the proposed setup of Facebook Operations in Ireland.

Dublin will be the centre for Facebook’s international operations and will provide a range of online technical, sales and operations support to Facebook’s users and customers across EMEA region.

Great validation of the talent pool in Ireland – and congratulation to IDA Ireland folks for attracting Facebook to Ireland.

Facebook jobs in Ireland due are live – and hopefully we will see local collaborations like a Web2Ireland Facebook Developer Garage in the near future.

Update
- press release from Govt
