Dublin is the main centre of Ireland’s Financial Services sector, where activity is focused around the Irish Financial Services Centre (IFSC). Established in 1987 by the Irish Government, the IFSC houses some of the world’s premier Financial Services institutions. A sophisticated support network including accountancy, legal actuarial, taxation, regulatory and telecommunications has grown up around it.
