Three years ago to the day, I began writing columns for this newspaper. On many occasions since then, there has been opportunity to discuss and dissect the plentiful good news about Ireland's recovery from economic crisis. Unfortunately, the news is no longer so good.

Over the past six months, the recovery has slowed. That may be merely temporary.

Alternatively, it may be that the economy is moving on to a lower growth trajectory.
