Amazon has secured planning permission for the first phase of its planned €1 billion data centre in north Dublin.

ADSIL plans to initially build a 223,000 sq ft data centre in Mulhuddart and has told Fingal County Council it might build seven more data centres on the 26-hectare IDA-owned site.
Amazon's €1bn 'Project G' for Dublin gets the go-ahead


I suppose its good news, I don't think Data Centers employ that many people but It shows that Amazon has faith in Ireland and continues to invest here.

32 jobs are forecasted, is this really the best way to use vital land resources around our capital city?

It's good & bad news..... Half of the immigration problem is due to Multinationals, with a huge surge in those from Outside the EU applying for Working Visas, from India, China, etc. 4 Years later, they apply for DUAL Nationality, ONLY in Ireland can they obtain Both.
Followed After by Family Reunification / +Chain Migration to Ireland.

Not to mention the Multinationals need housing, transport, education, hospitals, & are paying the minimum in tax.
To be a Valid Country, we need our own independent industries, & 2b Self-Sufficient,
they are blood suckers, who couldn't give a Damn about Ireland.

Dublin yet again, you would think Ireland was Dublin.

How many houses or Irish business could have been built on that site, how much did the IDA give the land away for?

We need Irish jobs, not more muck from abroad.

I wouldn't say it's good news at all. This will be yet another magnet for cheap migrant labour. What I'd like to see is Trump really bringing all these companies back to America.

A data centre is not the same thing as a call centre.

It's actually worse - it's a massive spying center - far worse than anything the Stasi could have imagined. But whatever it is, you can be sure it will be packed with cheap migrant labour.

A 223,000 sq ft data centre that will require 35MW of power and only employs 32 people.

At least with a call centre, they could have packed the 32 into basement and used the rest of the property for something useful.


Data centres are making energy demands shoot up in Ireland Data centres are making energy demands shoot up in Ireland
IRELAND’S ENERGY DEMAND will shoot up over the next decade due to the spread of data centres across the country – making harder the government’s task of avoiding fines for missed EU renewable-energy targets.
In its recent ‘all-island generation capacity statement’, which includes forecasts to 2026, EirGrid predicted energy demand would be flat in Northern Ireland – but it would continue increasing in the south “largely due to new data centres connecting”.
The semi-state electricity grid operator predicted a 21% increase in total electricity demand in the Republic over the next decade after a fall in demand during the recession years. The need for extra power supply would be centred around the capital.
“A significant proportion of this extra data centre load will materialise in the Dublin region,” the report said.
“Given the lead times associated with transmission reinforcements, generation capacity or equivalent may need to be available in the Dublin region to accommodate this additional demand in the short-term.”
According to EirGrid’s mid-range scenario, 15% of all electricity demand in Ireland will come from data centres by 2026.



...
Ireland’s increasing demand for energy – both due to the recovering economy and the proliferation of data centres across the country – has put the government on a collision course with EU officials over renewable-energy targets.
The Republic is one of only three countries in the EU – excluding the Brexit-bound UK – that is forecast to miss its agreed renewable energy-generation goal for 2020.

Based on current expectations, Ireland is facing fines of up to €75 million every year that it undershoots its target of obtaining 16% of total energy needs from renewable sources by 2020.


Ireland's electricity is the most expensive of anywhere in Europe Ireland's electricity is the most expensive of anywhere in Europe
IRELAND’S POWER PRICES were the highest in Europe last year and nearly double the electricity costs paid in the region’s cheapest countries.
European Commission data has also revealed that the share of government backing going to fossil-fuel industries – which provide about 80% of the country’s electricity – is among the highest in the EU.
...


The irish tax and bill payer will take the hit as usual one way or another.

All the retards will be proclaiming what a great country we are with our data centres. Spastics.

Not really, more like a HUGE ENERGY Consuming Monster, they need cool stable climates,


Yes. But they also allow people and businesses to do things that would not be feasible if they had to purchase the hardware themselves.

This is Bad.

Amazon are dirt. When globalists like Amazon's owner want to move to Ireland, it is a sign they see Ireland as hospitable to globalisation and it is. Ireland is in serious shit state.
