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.

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
