Is this the start of a trickle of positive press for Ireland? August, 2o11paddy

The last couple of weeks have seen some positive international reporting on Ireland and the role that significant export growth and other factors have had on this. ¬†Die Welt of Germany have asked if Ireland is ‘a model for how the west can recover’ and this this has been subsequently picked up on and ¬†Similarly, the Financial Times of London have this week reported on ‘Ireland’s unexpected economic comeback’.

In our target export markets there is definitely positive sentiment out there towards Ireland and the challenge now for all of us is to leverage this to win business and in turn, stimulate our local economy.
