Poll: Do you think Ireland’s economy is over the worst?

There seems to be slightly more optimism than usual about the economy as we head into 2013. What do you think – are you optimistic about it?

MINISTER FOR FINANCE Michael Noonan has joined the ranks of people who have somewhat cautiously suggested that Ireland’s economy is over the worst.

In the Sunday Independent today, Noonan pointed to the slight rise in property prices earlier this week as well that stronger than expected retail sales over Christmas as reasons to be optimistic about the economy in 2013.

At the same time, however,  unemployment remains high, emigration levels are at the highest since the 1980s, national debt is set to peak at 121 per cent of GDP next year and the economy is just barely meeting its modest growth targets.

So today we’re asking: Do you think Ireland’s economy is over the worst?
