Ireland’s economy is now motoring very strongly with annual GDP growth of 6.7% in quarter two. Robust growth in Britain and America, continued weakness of the Euro, and improved cost competitiveness are all driving exports. Inevitably this is feeding through to jobs growth. Total employment has risen by 57,100 over the last 12 months – an increase of 3% year-on-year. Moreover full-time employment has grown even more rapidly, and it is encouraging to see construction - for so long a laggard in the recovery - now leading the way with jobs growth of over 18% in the year to June.
