Good news Ireland to perform better than expected
"The Department of Finance official figure for 2014 is we're going to grow just ahead of 3 percent and next year we'll be around 3 percent as well," Mr. Noonan said. He made these remarks as he attended the parliamentary party think-in at Fota Island in south Ireland's County Cork.
"That's very strong when you look at growth rates across Europe. I can see a number of things that could see growth slip back but if it's managed prudently, you could run that for a decade and solve the problems that Ireland has," Mr. Noonan said. ■
