Economic relations between Ireland and the EU between the crash and Brexit
Seán Ó Riain
This chapter examines the economic relationship between Ireland and the EU over the decade from the financial crash to Brexit. This discussion is in the context of the globalised nature of the Irish economy. It argues that perceptions shifted from growing unease about the impact of the EU on the Irish economy after the financial crash to a renewed enthusiasm for and commitment to the EU as the primary economic framework for Ireland following Brexit.
