Abstract:

...The government has already announced a number of fiscal concessions to voters in recent months, and more tax cuts are likely to be implemented as the election approaches. ...This is reflected by the country s two main parties of govern- ment occupying the centre-right (Fine Gael and Fianna Fail). We do not believe Sinn Fein s leftist rhetoric will translate into a stellar performance at the polls in ---- (or earlier), particularly as conditions continue to improve for households, which will likely opt to stick the status quo.
