Budget 2018 has been announced by Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe.
Is this a Boom and Bust budget as called by the Opposition or a budget safeguarding the recovery progress made to date as claimed by Government ministers?
The self employed will pay €200 less in taxes and USC each year, however in direct economic terms, Budget 2018 will have limited short term effect.
There is €2bn support for infrastructure but is this enough funding to help those most in need of housing, healthcare and education?
