000baeb1-642The ground breaking ceremony for the new Facebook Data Centre has taken place in Clonee Co Meath.

The new site will be home to Facebook’s second data centre in Europe. It is hoped that more than 600 people will be employed during construction and there will be over 100 jobs in the data centre when it opens.

Brian Fitzgerald, Chairman of Meath County Council, will attend the ceremony and explains what it means for Meath: “We are obviously delighted that a company like Facebook has chosen Meath.

“It is a huge boost to our drive to attract investment to Meath.

“We haven’t been too successful down through the years so let’s hope that it is going to lead to others.”

Back in January, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg took to his social network to discuss the integral role the Clonee facility will play in the company’s global operations.
