What do you mean by I.T. hub exactly?
U.C.C. have a pretty well populated CS department with quite a lot of
students, as to does C.I.T, Waterford I.T. Tralee, Galway and notably U.L.
Industry wise, Cork has EMC, VMware, McAfee (Network Associates) and
more that I can't think of off the top of my head but one I can think of
is mainly on topic is RedHat.
Again off the top of my head I can only think of Dell for Limerick, but
Waterford has AOL and NTL.
But as a hub, again Cork has the National Software Campus in Mahon. In
which are quite a few I.T. based industries.
Sure, Dublin and environs has the likes of Google, eBay, Paypal, HP and
Intel, to name but a few. But I think it is clear that Dublin is far
from being a "Hub", but is just one of many in this isle. Those other
big names outside of Dublin would hardly locate elsewhere in Ireland if
there was a lack of significant skills or talent now would they?
