3 Economic Indicators from the CSO [That you will like]

Great news for Ireland with the Central Statistics Office releasing 3 positive indicators in a row over the last 2 days:

1. Unemployment is down

According to the CSO, Seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for September 2015 was 9.4%, down from the August 2015 rate of 9.5% and down from 10.9% in September 2014. More here.

2. More tourists are coming and more people in Ireland are able to Travel

In the period June – August 2015, the total number of trips to Ireland increased by 12.2% to 2,787,700 – an overall increase of 303,700 compared to the same period twelve months earlier.  Also the total number of overseas trips made by Irish residents during the period June – August 2015 increased by 6.2% to 2,316,700. More here.




3. House Prices are continuing to rise responsibly

While nowhere near the Celtic Tiger prices, House Prices seem to have returned to reasonable growth, with residential property prices up by 2.3% nationwide in the month of August, up 9.5% on an annual basis. Of course, there are problems in the rental sector, but hopefully normality in the home-owner sector will have the knock-on effect of restoring normality in the rental sector too. More here.

…and hopefully it will only get better when we win the Rugby World cup! #COYBIG

TV & Media Hackathon 2015

Well done to the Dublin team (Hugh, Gearoid pictured, and Abubakr and Rosario and anyone else I have missed on the earlier shifts) who are participating in the TV &  Media Hackathon from here in Ericsson LM Ireland.

The team are participating with teams in 17 other sites globally with 350 other participants (from Canada, the US in Atlanta, LA, Dallas, through Sweden, Spain, Croatia in Europe, all the way across the globe as far as China and Australia). The challenge is staggering: Create a TV application prototype! Peter and David (who’s chest is also pictured) have been providing moral as well as nutritional support (in the form of Pizza).

The guys stopped briefly to let me know that it is tough, but they are really enjoying the challenge. # TVandMediaHackathon2015 #Ericsson
