Central Bank of Ireland tweetz:
“The Central Bank has published the fourth Quarterly Bulletin of 2019, which outlines divergent paths for the Irish economy depending on the outcome of Brexit process.
“The Irish economy continues to grow strongly, supported by strong growth in employment and real incomes.
“The path ahead for the economy is linked to the outcome of ongoing Brexit negotiations. If a disorderly, no-deal Brexit can be avoided, it is projected that underlying economic activity will grow at a relatively solid pace in coming years.
“In a no-deal scenario, however, significant disruption and the negative shock to economic activity would adversely affect output and employment and the path ahead for the next few years would be very different.”
Economics correspondent at Virgin Media Paul Colgan tweetz:
“Taoiseach Leo Varadkar is in eBay’s Irish headquarters this morning. He hasn’t sold the backstop deal yet.”
