Taoiseach Enda Kenny celebrates TelecityGroup Ireland

Irish prime minister guest of honour at TelecityGroup Ireland re-launch


TelecityGroup, Europe's industry-leading provider of carrier-neutral data centres, was officially re-launched in Ireland today by An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny, T.D. at an event in Dublin.  Headquartered in London, TelecityGroup operates data centres in prime locations across Europe including Amsterdam, Frankfurt, London, Manchester, Milan, Paris, Stockholm and Dublin.

TelecityGroup acquired Data Electronics Group Limited, Ireland’s leading provider of highly connected carrier-neutral data centres, for a total consideration of £87.6 million in cash in August, substantially increasing its capacity in Ireland.

Speaking at the launch, An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny, T.D., said: "TelecityGroup’s presence in Ireland represents a consolidation of Ireland’s leadership position as a successful location for leading-edge technology investments and shows our capacity to provide an increasingly competitive, business–friendly environment in which global companies such as TelecityGroup can grow and develop. We are a pro-business country and proud to be to the forefront of the minds of global business leaders, as they make critical investment decisions.  TelecityGroup is a company with a strong reputation and track record and one that we know will add greatly to the Irish economy."

Maurice Mortell, Managing Director, TelecityGroup Ireland said: “I’m delighted that TelecityGroup is leading the way in this new era in the data centre market in Ireland.  As the European leader, the company is strongly positioned to make a huge impact in the Irish market by offering vast resources including talent, technology and infrastructure.  This is great news for our customers as we will be able to deliver unrivalled service and value in this market.”

TelecityGroup Ireland operates three high quality carrier-neutral data centres in Dublin, with a combined capacity of over 5000 square metres and 5 megawatts (MW) of customer available power. These data centres are key international internet hubs and offer access to over 40 carrier networks and access to INEX, the Dublin internet exchange. TelecityGroup Ireland has plans in progress to add an additional 7.5MW of incremental customer power, which will take its total customer capability across its sites to 12.5 MW.
