Challenges to Ireland's Competitiveness: Discussion

Mr. Oliver Gilvarry:

The council is concerned about the number of measures, whether it is the cost of insurance; the cost of credit; getting a mortgage; or being able to get a home to purchase or rent at affordable levels. All of those issues impact our competitiveness and if we do not deal with them that will cause an issue with Ireland not being an attractive place to live and work.
