Document: HTML Full Text PDF
First coined in 1997, the term ‘Celtic Tiger’ come to refer to the phenomenal growth of
the Irish economy throughout the 1990s and into this century. Ireland as it exists today is
a far cry from the quiet and oft forgotten isle it once was. An interweaving of efforts
from within and without the government since 1950 have created a nation with high educational
standards, political stability, sound fiscal policies, and an overall clarity of economic
purpose. The Celtic Tiger phenomenon is a result of careful planning and years of hard work.
