This policy brief analyses Ireland's economic recovery and concludes that the narrative about fiscal austerity and internal devaluation producing an Irish growth miracle is simplistic and misleading. The author proves that the Irish economy's strong growth performance since mid-2014 can be attributed to a confluence of internal and external factors that have cumulatively added strong tailwinds to growth.
