Mayo-based Irish TV has created 20 jobs in its new Munster regional hub.
The posts will be in a range of skilled media disciplines as the channel expands its range of locally-produced programming from the six Munster counties through its new regional office.
The jobs were announced by Minister for Diaspora Affairs Jimmy Deenihan who opened the offices at the Kerry Technology Park.
Irish TV has witnessed exceptional growth since it was launched last May and delivers 40 new Irish-produced programmes every week, including 32 weekly County Matters shows.
Households in Ireland have access to Irish TV on Sky TV 191, Freesat 400, eircom eVision 191 and online at irishtv.com.
Irish TV, founded by Westport couple Pierce O’Reilly and Mairead Ni Maolchiarain, expects to be available on the Saorview platform in March, and is currently in negotiations with a range of overseas networks.
Kerry broadcaster Brian Hurley has been appointed as Munster Regional Manager for Irish TV and he will be responsible for all programming from the region.
