Talented young law graduate Stephen Traynor, Meath, has been appointed Dublin's first FinTech intern in Ireland's legal and advisory world.

Stephen will be working with Ireland's top FinTech lawyers to advise both regulated institutions and tech companies in Ireland's ever expanding FinTech industry.

Over the next five years, industry experts believe 5,000 jobs could be created in Ireland's burgeoning FinTech sector, a figure that would represent a doubling of jobs in the industry.
