The economics misses the incredible transformation in Irish society, as usual.

During the period of EU membership IE has moved from being a homogenously white-Irish society dominated by a regressive form of Catholicism where both homosexuality and contraception was illegal to a much more cosmopolitan society that's in the process of rooting out the institutional vestiges of Church control.
