Celtic comeback? Ireland’s economic rebound

Ireland’s real GDP is now 7 percent above the late 2007 peak of the Celtic Tiger.

“The economy might not be able to sustain its recent blistering pace,” The Wall Street Journal reports. “Even so, Ireland is set to remain the Eurozone’s growth star.”

The Irish stock market is up 28.6 percent this year. The Street suggests three Irish stocks.

But the Financial Times warns the last CT boom “made the Irish a bit cynical about official economic pronouncements, especially a few weeks before the next general election.”
