Economic advisor gazes into crystal ball to come up with twelve key forecasts

Predictions ... Cathal McDonagh.

A leading figure in one of the country’s top economic consultancy operation has forecast that 2020 will be for another strong year for Ireland.

Cathal MacDonagh, Managing Partner in Galway for EY, projected 40,000 more jobs, a small government surplus and GDP growth of 3.2% – but all based on the avoidance of a no-deal Brexit.

That outlook is slightly cooler than the two buoyant years Ireland has just enjoyed, though this is not entirely unwelcome as the pressures of fast growth are beginning to become more visible. The predictions assume the avoidance of a no-deal Brexit in 2020.

“Despite weakening global conditions, we believe the Irish economy is entering 2020 in rude health and expect domestic strength to continue,” said Mr McDonagh.

“We predict the labour market will slow only modestly as supply tightens and wage costs increase but with an expected 40,000 net jobs created and a 4% rise in tax receipts, we see a positive economic climate in what will be an election year.

“The rate of job and wage growth should support a healthy 2.4% growth in consumer spending in 2020. With the national savings ratio at a healthy level and confidence largely restored in the property markets, fears over Brexit and the global economy appear to be only having a modest effect on consumer behaviour.”

The upbeat outlook is tempered somewhat by the fact that Ireland still has €175 billion in debt and the challenges presented by extremely fast rates of growth.

New chapter...Galway Bay Brewery founder Jason O'Connell.

One of Ireland’s most established craft breweries has kicked off the New Year with the launch of a full range of canned beers.

Galway Bay Brewery’s core range will now be available in 33cl cans, with all limited edition, seasonal, and collaborative brews available in 44cl cans.

The core range includes Of Foam & Fury, a double IPA; Full Sail, a simple malt beer; Bay Ale , a traditional ale; Althea , a modern American Pale Ale; and Buried at Sea, a chocolate milk stout.

Limited edition beers that are now available in cans include Weights & Measures – a citra session IPA – and Slow Lives, a German-style Helles Lager. New limited edition beers will be released in cans each month.

Galway Bay Brewery owner Jason O’Connell said they were very excited about this next step – and starting 2020 on such a high.

“In recent years we have seen increasing demand for cans of craft beer and have gotten a great reaction to the limited edition cans we have released using an outside canning service,” he said.

“We are delighted to have taken the canning in-house and to offer our complete core range, monthly specials and seasonal beers in cans.

“We do our best to be as sustainable and environmentally conscious as possible, and the fact that cans are greener in relation to packaging, shipping and recycling is very important to us as well,” he added.

Flights promote Galway city and county on 6,300 airplanes coming into Ireland

Tourism Ireland chief executive Niall Gibbons, Fáilte Ireland’s Liz Halpin and Inflightflix International CEO Martin O’Regan celebrating Ireland’s global reach via inflight entertainment.

A company established by a Galway man – making inflight videos for 29 global airlines – is doing his bit this New Year to bring tourists to his native county.

Martin O’Regan is the founder of InflightFlix International, which provides destination video guides to the airline industry.

They are to distribute its destination video guides promoting great Ireland experiences – including Galway city and county – to the inflight entertainment companies of all 6,300 airplanes with Inflight Entertainment that fly to Ireland.

The company will make its Wild Atlantic Drive and Dublin video guides available free of charge as inflight content to the airlines.

They say this will not only enhance the passenger experience on flights to Ireland but also inspire passengers using the airlines’ other routes worldwide to book a flight to Ireland.

“Providing these videos to airlines who collectively have 6,349 airplanes and fly 1.375 billion passengers annually is a unique opportunity to reach, engage and inspire a truly global audience to visit Ireland,” said Martin O’Regan.

“The Wild Atlantic Drive and Dublin video guides each showcase over 100 great things to do, places to go, stay, eat, drink and shop and each experience is featured for 30 seconds.

“The video guides are customised for each airline’s brand and airports can also use them on websites, emails and social media channels to market routes to Ireland,” he added.

Mr O’Regan said that he believed that this campaign would help counteract some of the negative impact of Brexit on tourism.
