    Abstract

    This paper outlines some of the key dimensions of European industrial investment in Ireland over the last thirty years or so, with particular reference to: the distribution of incoming firms between source countries; the sectoral and size characteristics of European firms operating in Ireland; and the internal spatial distribution of these firms. For comparative purposes, the corresponding data for firms emanating from the USA (the largest source of foreign investment in Ireland) are presented throughout.
