Hi all -

I'm forwarding this just for general interest; unfortunately the
particular positions are based in google headquarters in the US;
but maybe there may be an opportunity to develop some interaction
between irl-dean and google locally.  Anyone have any contacts in
google in Dublin?

Best - Barry.
