The EU Dimension to Recent Irish Growth: The Single Market and the Structural Funds


  • Barry, F.

  • Bradley, J.


There are a number of factors that are generally agreed to have a role to play in the story of Ireland's recent success. These include the long-term consequences of the fiscal stabilisation of the late 1980s, the European Structural Funds, the increased educational attainment of the workforce, continued Irish success in attracting FDI inflows, and the wage moderation and peaceful labour relations that have characterised the last decade. Our focus in the present paper is on the EU dimension, which embraces the effects of both the Single Market and the Strcutural Funds.
