Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/22/2013 -- We believe the Irish economy will gain momentum in H213 after several quarters of anaemic growth. A relative improvement in the eurozone will pave the way for net exports to recover, while modestly improving domestic demand will ensure that private consumption picks up. Although this has positive implications for consumer spending on food and drink, we stress that domestic demand will remain well below potential for some time to come, with the severity of the country's economic downturn likely to ensure that average disposable incomes remain well below pre-crisis levels for the next few years.
