Ireland’s Ambassador to the US Presides over Event and
Launches the Seattle Irish Network

SEATTLE, WA, Jun. 8, 2010—Ireland’s growing influence on Seattle’s technology landscape is on display here today at an Enterprise Ireland-sponsored event that gathers Irish software experts and executives from Seattle’s leading technology companies to discuss next-generation wireless infrastructure/mobile applications and cloud computing innovations.  Ireland’s Ambassador to the US, His Excellency, Michael Collins, will preside over the event.  Separately, Ambassador Collins will also launch Seattle’s Irish Network, marking an expansion of this Diaspora-led organization that is already entrenched in New York, Boston, Chicago, Washington DC, San Diego and San Francisco.

“Today’s events reflect Ireland’s increasing contribution to information technology (IT) innovation in the region,” said John McIntyre, west coast manager and senior vice president of software and services at Enterprise Ireland.  “Companies like Newbay, a leader in the converged digital lifestyle services sector, and InishTech, which provides Software Licensing and Protection (SLP) Services, are planting their US roots in Seattle for proximity to the world’s software giants and to tap into the City’s culture of innovation and entrepreneurship.”   (more…)
