Ireland’s remarkable economic growth over the last 15 years had strong effects on the energy sector. Due to rapidly increasing demand, Ireland has become much more dependent on international energy markets than it was in the past. For Irish energy policy, 2007 is a watershed year. It marks the end of the transition in market liberalisation with the introduction of a unified Irish electricity market. In addition, the publication of a new energy policy should help to ensure future security of supply and bring further environmental improvements of energy use.  Ireland is highly dependent on oi

Raising children and having a career both rate highly as important life goals for many people. Helping parents to achieve these goals is vital for society: parental care plays a crucial role in child development and parental employment promotes economic prosperity.

William-Henry Ireland's Rimualdo; or, The Castle of Badajos was first published in 1800 at the apex of the genre's popularity. Like Ann Radcliffe before him, Ireland skillfully weaves the familiar Gothic conventions with Shakespearean characteristics. Set in medieval Spain, the novel is nothing less than a register of Gothic paraphernalia: "unnatural parents, persecuted lovers, murders, haunted apartments, winding sheets and winding staircases, subterranean passages, lamps that are dim and perverse and that always go out when they should not, monasteries, caves, monks, tall, thin, and withered

Ireland's economic success story is one that many OECD countries would like to emulate. Of the many factors linked to this success, understanding the public sector’s role is key. Integration matters. The key public service reform challenge for Ireland going forward is for the different parts of the Irish Public Service to work cohesively together, with a more integrated approach at the national and local levels. This book provides an overview of the Irish Public Service, its fiscal and demographic context, and looks at capacity and motivation issues, improving service delivery, and strengt

This report, part of a series covering around 21 OECD countries, contains a survey of Ireland's main barriers to employment for older workers, an assessment of the adequacy and effectiveness of existing measures to overcome these barriers, and a set of policy recommendations to further action by public authorities and social partners. These recommendations are designed to alleviate some of the pension and health care pressures governments are facing because of ageing populations.
