Ireland and COVID-19


In this report we set out what we know so far about the impact of COVID-19 on the Irish economy.

However, plausible scenarios include a significant reduction in GDP growth towards 1% if the virus is brought under control quickly or an outright contraction in Irish GDP in 2020.
