Most Popular Irish LinkedIn Groups

LinkedIn Groups are a really effective way of raising your profile on LinkedIn, whether you’re looking for a new job, trying to reach new customers and markets or just looking for some peer networking.

We asked the question on Twitter recently, which are the most popular Irish LinkedIn Groups.  We couldn’t find the answer and so we’ve taken a stab at it ourselves.  This isn’t an exact science, we searched for LinkedIn Groups with ‘Ireland’ or ‘Irish’ in the title, so if there are any groups missing, please do let us know!
