DUBLIN – Multinational companies in Ireland added 17,000 jobs in 2021 to lift the total number employed in the sector to a record 275,000, deputy prime minister Leo Varadkar told RTE radio on Monday.

Just over 10% of Ireland’s workforce is employed by the multinational sector, particularly large technology and pharmaceutical multinationals, attracted in part by Ireland’s low corporate tax rate.
