Who do you think is Ireland's ever Minister of Finance?
He introduced the tax bands which kept government spending to a limit and help create a budget surplus for the first time since 1967. Ireland had a better a GDP rating with Quinn than it did under his successors McCreevey and Cowen.Why, Ruairi Quinn he was a big government statist.
Totally agree rWhitaker - its for no little reason that the ESRI is based in Whitaker Square. As to the FF gombeems -I couldn't put a tissue between them for uselessness.Ray MacSharry- but there was somebody who was effectively the Minister for Finance, who was a great man that changed this country, TK Whitaker- Secretary to the Dept of Finance.
