The international economic and business press did and called 'bullsh1t' on it. Enda Kenny took over when the country was near bankrupt- in fact to all intents and purposes it was.No, real economics. Look at the figures.
It is hardly surprising that one of the world's most open and unprotected economies should have some economic indicators move upwards from the 'she's about to implode' level on the economic valve since the economic crisis of 2007 to 2011.
None of that is down to Enda Kenny or FF's current mudguard, Fine Gael. He could have spent the last decade masturbating in a corner and nothing would have been any different with the possible exception of the style of photograph on a magazine cover.
Taoiseachs and two creaky old men's social clubs from a not very impressive civil war have absolutely no effect whatsoever on Irish economic indicators and whoever thinks they do is a fool.
