Carlow is situated in the southeast of Ireland along the picturesque River Barrow. The town's original settlement began thousands of years ago, prior to written Irish history. It has played a major role in the meantime, serving as the capital of the country in the 14th century.
Today, Carlow is a thriving business center. With two colleges and a large population of young professionals, there is a vibrant, youthful atmosphere to the growing town. New shopping and housing have contributed to the revitalization.
World-class IT support center
Carlow is home to Unum Ireland, a division providing IT support to Unum's global operations. Unum enjoys a strong partnership with the local Institute of Technology and established a software development lab for the campus in 2009. Hiring local graduates, maintaining an active internship program, and collaborating with secondary schools to promote IT career opportunities demonstrate Unum's commitment to the Carlow community while helping to build Ireland's future technology workforce.
