What would you ask the Troika? Here's your chance

Deputy Stephen Donnelly is meeting the troika today – and wants our commenters’ input.

IF YOU HAD the chance to ask the Troika anything, what questions would you put forward?

Independent TD Stephen Donnelly is to meet with the members of the Troika this afternoon, and is looking for input from readers.

He will be checking in with the questions posted to our open thread before he meets with them mid-afternoon, and is hoping that some will play a role in influencing what he asks.

Deputy Donnelly will fill us in on how the meeting went, and which questions from commenters informed the meeting, after it concludes.

It is anticipated that he will speak to the Troika about how the EU/IMF programme is going, where they think Ireland should be improving, whether they are aware of the difficulties on the ground in Ireland, and what the IMF and ECB are saying about the country.
