With a housing shortage that doesn’t look like it is going to be solved anytime soon and rising costs of living, more multinational companies are looking to setup outside of Ireland’s capital.

Last week Career Zoo, one of Ireland’s largest career events, took place in the midland’s town with organisers stating that Athlone’s lower cost of living and lifestyle makes it an attractive place to live.
