The €11bn cost-of-living budget is on a par with anything delivered during the halcyon days of the Celtic Tiger. And yet it almost feels like running to stand still, writes Fionnán Sheahan as he evaluates how each minister got on with today's giveaway.
From energy credits to cuts in childcare costs, Charlie Weston counts the key ways today's Budget is intended to put money in our pockets.
Criticisms right now will ring hollow for all but the most determinedly anti-Government people as the total for one-off cost-of-living supports tops €2.2bn. But the political success of this extraordinary €11bn giveaway bonanza may well turn on how long, cold and wet this winter may be, says John Downing.
A key factor to the Budget was simply this: The silence of Sinn Féin Deputies as it was announced, says Senan Molony. There was virtually nothing to criticise, unless smokers stub out their cigs in greater frustration at a 50c rise. Or others carp about carbon tax.
