An Irish IT company has announced the creation of 50 new high-level jobs this morning.

Most of new positions will be based at the headquarters of IT project specialists Aspira in Cork, with some at the company's Dublin office.

They will be rolled out over the next 18 months and will include project management, business analysis and software development roles.

Aspira, saying it had seen growth of 65% in 2015 due to a number of new project wins, also announced the €1.5m acquisition of IT services firm B-TEC Solutions.

Aspira chief executive Pat Lucey said; "We forecast overall sales to more than double over the next three years, with international sales growing faster again."

An Taoiseach Enda Kenny will officially open Aspira's new state-of-the-art headquarters in Little Island, Cork later today.
