"Ireland Country Risk Report Q1 2016" now available at Fast Market Research

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.

Ireland will be the fastest growing economy in the developed world in 2015, and will remain a eurozone growth outperformer the following year.

Economic growth has returned to 'Celtic Tiger'-era levels in H115, and we believe growth momentum will be sustained over the coming quarters.

Systemic risks to the economic outlook have been materially reduced by Ireland's progress unwinding dual fiscal and current account deficits over the past few years.

Net exports will continue playing a key role driving growth, while growth will also be supported by an ever improving outlook for Irish households and consumer spending.

Although the next election due by April 2016 looks uncertain, it is unlikely Sinn Fein will play a role in government. This is net positive for political stability.

An improving economic outlook and Sinn Fein's decline in the polls means the ruling Fine Gael/Labour coalition has an increasing chance of remaining in power.

Major Forecast Changes

We have revised up our forecasts for real GDP growth to 6.1% in 2015 and 4.2% in 2016, from 4.0% and 3.5% previously. This means we are even further above Bloomberg consensus estimates for growth of 3.7% and 3.5% respectively.

Key Risks To Outlook

Given Ireland's solid structural economic outlook, the main risks to Ireland's economy are external. An unexpected global credit event could lead to a significant deterioration in global investment conditions, which would hit Ireland's highly open economy. Similarly, a major slowdown in the eurozone would have the ability to dent exports and dampen Irish real GDP growth in the process.
