Construction has been a major driver of the Irish economy over the last decade-and-a-half, representing almost one quarter of total economic output in 2006. From that peak it has experienced the severest contraction in living memory. Falling prices, business failures and substantial job losses have been the result, with effects being felt throughout the supply chain. Public sector investment is beset by fiscal constraints, and the private sector is likely to remain depressed for the foreseeable future. Substantial supply overhangs, along with a lack of confidence and a lack of finance, are combining to severely restrict activity.
