The Finance Dublin Debt Clock

The Finance Dublin Irish Government Debt Clock was set at midnight on June 30th 2009, when it was €65.278 billion. It updates the latest official figure for the National Debt of Ireland and since then, the clock has been re-set regularly to reflect changes in debt and GDP figures from the National Treasury Management Agency (NTMA), and the CSO.

The Debt Clock, launched in July 2009, surpassed €85 billion by the end of December 2010, and it continued to rise precipitously in 2011 and 2012, slowing eventually in 2013.

The blog published by Finance Dublin charted the rise of the debt through this period in Irish economic history of the worst and most challenging phases of the Irish debt crisis. It argued consistently against calls by many economists and commentators, despairing of the potential of the open economy model for the Irish economy followed since the sixties, to default on the national debt. In the end the view prevailed and few since then question that this was the correct strategy as the Irish economy turned around to record 7 p.c. growth in 2015, coinciding with a fall in the debt-GDP ratio as dramatic on the downside as was experienced in the first years of the crisis.

Soon to be announced: Deals of the Year Awards 2017

Deals of the Year 2016

Finance Dublin received nominations for almost 160 deals for the forthcoming 2017 Deals of the Year Awards with nominating firms including accountancy firms, banks, corporate finance houses, public bodies, and corporates. The five awards categories of Mergers & Acquisitions, Equity Capital Markets, Debt Capital Markets, Loans & Financing and Financial Services each contain deals and transactions that highlight the depth of expertise in Ireland's financial and professional services. Especially evident in this year's list of nominations is a large increase in the level of deals that combine Irish world-leading sectoral expertise - for instance securitisation and aircraft leasing. Another trend evident is the use of Irish specialist expertise in large global deals from Spain to Australia to South Korea. While multi-billion euro deals feature strongly as in recent years there is a noticeable growth in nominations involving Irish SMEs gaining access to financing to drive their growth strategies.

The winning deals in last year's Finance Dublin Deals of the Year Awards recognised the achievements of a record year in corporate finance and financial services dealmaking, reflected in a record level of nominations for the awards - 155 nominations, compared with 111 in 2015. The 29 Winning Deals in 2016 profiled in the case studies of this Special Report celebrated the combination of talent, innovation and professionalism that is helped put Ireland at the top of Europe’s economic growth tables.
