The Irish economy grew by just under 1% last year, marking two years of growth, official figures have revealed.
The Central Statistics Office (CSO) said the value of all goods and services, including the multinational sector, as measured by gross domestic product (GDP) grew by 0.9%.
Officials said 2012 was the second year in succession that GDP outperformed the previous year following three years of recession from 2008 to 2010.
