Tesco Ireland has announced another expansion in the Republic of Ireland, which will result in its opening seven new stores and the creation of approximately 750 new jobs during the course of 2010. The UK supermarket chain, which already employs more than 13,000 people in Ireland, says it will create 748 new jobs over the year, the majority of which will be outside Dublin.

The new stores, creating 688 jobs, will be opened in Kinnegad, Westmeath (80 jobs), Oranmore, Galway (110), Swinford, Mayo (90), Ballybeg, Waterford (110), Thomas St, Dublin (16), Kimmage, Dublin (16) and Naas (266). The investment plan also includes a replacement store in Roscrea, Tipperary that will result in 60 additional new jobs.
