The Irish economy looks set to experience another year of strong recovery in
2017. The performance of key indicators – taxation revenues and labour market
variables – underpins our assessment that the domestic economy will experience
output growth of approximately 5 per cent for the current year. We expect the
economy to also grow strongly in 2018, at a rate of 4.2 per cent.
