Google is reportedly looking into investing E150 million towards a new data centre in Dublin.
According to a report, the new centre would increase the total amount invested in Ireland by the California-based search giant to E500 million.
Google will begin filing for planning permission soon.
If the centre is given the go ahead it will create around 300 construction jobs during its building and 60 full-time jobs upon completion.
Google opened a similar data centre in 2013, costing E75 million, roughly half the size of the one in the works at the moment.
The company has also bought up office estate in the capital recently, spending E211 million on three buildings, including the Alto Veltro - the tallest in the city.
