    16.5 BILLION higher.

    Nasty Blueshirts.
    People are afraid to spend or forced to come up with absurd deposits (rent not being factored in) before applying for a mortgage!

    Over 5 years? Increased activity based here that used to be based in the UK, an increasingly skilled workforce (5 years of trained college students displacing 5 years of retirees). You list things like energy prices, QE etc, but many of the multinationals in Ireland that employ tens of thousands (Microsoft, Google, Pfizer etc) aren't overly impacted by that.

    That said, you bank on a recession about once every 15 years, so you've got that to look forward to at the end of the 5 year term.

    The stuff that's going to be a real problem for the country won't really bite over 5 years. The HSE is massively underfunded looking at the increasing numbers of aged it has to manage, there's nowhere for those old people to actually live and the looming Japanesque social security problems will all only really start to impact in 15-20 years.
