Ireland

On the assumption of a “smooth” Brexit, GDP growth in Ireland is projected to remain robust, though moderating. Abstracting from multinationals’ volatile activities, underlying domestic demand will remain resilient, supported by strong construction investment and despite the toll taken by slower trade partner growth and high external uncertainty on business sentiment. The labour market will tighten, and the associated wage pressures will push up inflation.
