Coming just a week before St. Patrick's Day when business in Ireland takes centre stage globally for several days, this report will provide a valuable insight into the scale of this relationship, and why Ireland has become the global location of choice for US investment.


Joseph Quinlan, author of this report, will present its findings for the first time at the President's Lunch. The following week it will be the subject of an seminar in New York.
