St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner so we thought it would be a great time to celebrate being Irish.

Barometer 206

As you may know we're a 100% Irish owned and run Company Information and Credit Risk agency - as a result of that we're taking this opportunity to celebrate all things Irish - to start with, lets take a look at the numbers:

184,936 - actively trading Irish companies
5,961 - new Irish businesses set up in 2014
4,968 - first time directors of Irish companies in 2014
3,659 - new Irish companies set up so far this year - up 10% on 2013

Did you know...
- St. Patrick's real name was Maewyn Succat
- Patrick is the 3rd most popular name for a male director in Ireland - Patricia is 6th for females
- The first St. Patrick's Day parade didn't take place in Ireland - it took place in Boston in 1737
- 19 first time directors of Irish companies this year were born on St. Patrick's Day

We'd like to take this opportunity to wish you all the best for St. Patrick's Day - we hope you have a good one wherever you are. Our offices will be closed this Monday, 17th March 2014, due to the Bank Holiday but will re-open at 9.00am the following day.
