  • February 13, 2018

    Kirby has joined Host in Ireland, a strategic global initiative created to increase awareness of the benefits of hosting digital assets in Ireland, as a strategic partner for 2018.  In addition, Mark Flanagan, Kirby Group Operations Director, will join the Host in Ireland Executive Committee.

    Commenting on the partnership, Mark Flanagan, Kirby Group Operations Director, said: “We are delighted to join Host in Ireland as a strategic partner. Through this partnership, Kirby will play an active role in strengthening Ireland’s position as an optimum location for digital assets by sharing our in-depth knowledge and expertise in delivering high quality, efficient and resilient mission critical infrastructure.”

    Garry Connolly, Founder and President of Host in Ireland, said: ““As our group of active partners continues to grow this year, we are delighted to welcome Kirby Group Engineering to the Host in Ireland collective. I would also like to extend a warm welcome to Mr. Flanagan, who will undoubtedly prove to be an asset to our Executive Committee.”

    The combination of Ireland’s pro-business approach, attractive corporate tax and legal system, renewable energy resources, and commitment to data centre energy efficiency make it uniquely attractive to global operators, including international pharmaceutical, biotech and software companies seeking an optimal location to host their digital assets. The result is that Ireland has evolved as a Tier 1 hosting location to become the ‘Digital Gateway to Europe’ and the ‘Home of the Hybrid Cloud’ as major multinational companies prioritise their online presence and aggressively launch digital-first initiatives.
