Ireland Election: What will the next government do to boost technology investment?

   Technology is major driver of the Irish economy but entrepreneurs worry about new taxes.
Technology is major driver of the Irish economy, as acknowledged by the party political leaders during televised debates, seeking the attention of voters.

But with the threat of a global digital tax the sector wants the next government to ensure increased costs do not undermine new ventures.

Gillian Doyle, Chief Executive of Cerebreon Technologies, based in Ardara, County Donegal, tells the BBC's Russell Padmore what Irish technology companies want from political leaders after the election.
