German supermarket chain Lidl has announced it is to create 600 jobs in Ireland over the next two years.
The company said it is expanding due to significant growth in market share and needs new staff to support a growing supermarket network.
The company has opened stores at 146 locations across the country, since it first arrived 16 years ago.
With 1.5 million customers coming through its doors in Ireland each week, its market share is now almost one-eighth of the Irish grocery sector.
