about

Since the first edition, there have been fundamental changes in the Irish growth model. The sudden collapse of the Irish economy in 2008 raises questions such as: why the sudden and deep decline in economic growth? What are the prospects for a return to growth? This book proves yet again to be the definitive work on the Celtic Tiger.
PEADAR KIRBY is Professor of International Politics and Public Policy in the Department of Politics and Public Administration at the University of Limerick, Ireland. He has written a number of books on Ireland, Latin America and development.
