Despite operating in the presence of a considerable degree of uncertainty, the Irish economy continues to grow at a robust rate. The domestic economy is now expected to grow by 4.0 per cent in 2019 and 3.2 per cent in 2020. These growth rates are up marginally on our forecasts in the previous Commentary.

These forecasts for 2019 and 2020 are subject to the technical assumption that the UK’s continued membership in the EU will effectively remain in place after October 2019.
