HOW will Budget 2014 affect your pocket, and how will it impact on this country and this government?
This year, on independent.ie, we will provide the very best Budget coverage – and that is not an idle promise.
The country’s leading personal finance, political and business journalists – from Charlie Weston to Fionnan Sheahan to Tom Molloy to Colette Browne, and many more – will be feeding in to our live blog from early morning until late evening, while we also carry the speeches by Finance Minister Michael Noonan and Public Expenditure Minister Brendan Howlin.
The Independent.ie live budget blog will be hosted by Ailish O’Hora from 10am.
We’ll bring you live updates throughout the day as well as a blow-by-blow account of the budget itself.
You can put your questions to our tax specialists- Grant Thornton’s Jim Kelly and Caitriona Fitzpatrick – From 1.30pm through the live blog and using #IndoBudget2014.
Economist Alan McQuaid will also be on hand with his unique analysis on the proceedings.
Our talented team including Fiach Kelly, Maeve Sheehan, Richard Curran, Ailish O'Hora and Tom Lyons will be providing ongoing analysis and in-depth news stories throughout the afternoon, and into the early evening – through video, live debates and various ‘snap’ and in-depth analysis articles.
Video will be a major part of our coverage throughout the day – from the politicians arriving at the Dail to Michael Noonan on the plinth to reaction from the opposition parties afterwards – and we will have featured case studies to illustrate exactly how the Budget has impacted on real people.
