Joint Oireachtas Committee on Finance, Public Expenditure and Reform: Pre-Budget Submissions: Discussion (15 Jul 2014)

Ciarán Lynch: In order to move things to a conclusion, because we are going to conclude at 5 p.m., I will try to put a macro shape on the proceedings. Ms Burke’s reading of the economy might be considered a very optimistic one. As a member of the Government I am not too sure whether I would go out to bat for that, but I hope she is right that we will end up in a neutral position at the end of the...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Finance, Public Expenditure and Reform: Pre-Budget Submissions: Discussion (15 Jul 2014)

Ciarán Lynch: I will round off something with Mr. Cribben before I bring in Deputy Donnelly. On this consumption figure of 14 litres, I am trying to quantify what 14 litres of alcohol looks like.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Finance, Public Expenditure and Reform: Pre-Budget Submissions: Discussion (15 Jul 2014)

It is only a matter of time before there will be no acceptable level of alcohol in...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Finance, Public Expenditure and Reform: Pre-Budget Submissions: Discussion (15 Jul 2014)

The pub experience in Ireland is unique and gives our business model a particular type of branding and a particular advantage over other destination points. Those in the retail trade have embraced significantly online technology and even though one can buy a mobile phone online, the research will show...
