eBay to create 1000 jobs in Ireland?

Maybe...

Online auction giant eBay may be about to create as many as 1000 jobs in Dublin, according to a weekend report by the Sunday Business Post.

The report claims the Internet giant has signed up for a humongous building on the Blanchardstown Corporate Park, a commercial estate to the north west of Dublin.

Details at this stage are still sketchy, but according to the report, part of the new premises will be use to house eBay's online payment outfit, PayPal.

No one at eBay was available to comment on news - or provide any further details - at the time of writing.

If eBay does decide to settle in Ireland then it will come as a welcome boost to the local economy.

For as eBay gets ready to move in, the paper reports that 3Com is expected to confirm 650 layoffs later this week as it decides to pack its bags and up sticks. ®
