More about Ireland

  • ALLCOUNTRYLIST: Overview of major industries in Ireland, including mining, construction, transportation, tourism, and foreign trade.

Energy industry

Most of the energy demand is covered by imports (mainly from Great Britain).

Ireland itself produced energy in 2018 from natural gas (53.9%), coal (10.7%), peat (10.3%), crude oil (0.8%) as well as from wind power (16.3%), hydropower (1, 3%) and other renewable sources as well as waste incineration.

The secured natural gas reserves are given as 9.9 billion m 3 and are located off the south coast in the Kinsale Head gas field, which has been in operation since 1978, and in the smaller Ballycotton gas field (discovered in 1989). A large wind farm is in operation off the coast of Dublin. The most powerful hydropower plant is Turlough Hill, Ireland’s only pumped storage power plant. In 2019 Ireland started the extensive energy program “Renewable Electricity Support Scheme” (program to support electricity production from renewable sources), the aim of which is to achieve a 70% green electricity share by 2030.

Industry

Around 19% of all employees work in the manufacturing sector (including mining, energy and construction). They generated (2016) 41.5% of GDP. Thanks to substantial investment grants and generous tax breaks, more than 1,000 foreign companies (mainly from the USA, Great Britain, Germany and Japan) were able to settle in the country before the banking and financial crisis (from 2007). The Irish industry has traditionally been focused on the processing of agricultural products, as well as the footwear and textile industries (tweed manufacture, knitwear) and is geared towards the domestic and British markets.

The United Kingdom and Gibraltar European Union membership referendum, the exit of Britain from the EU ie to 31.01.2020, the economy can affect development of Ireland sensitive. Mechanical engineering and instrument construction as well as vehicle accessories, electrical, electronic, chemical and pharmaceutical industries dominate the foreign industrial companies. In addition to Dublin, Cork, Limerick (with Shannon Airport), Waterford and Galway are important economic centers.

The approximately 956 km of inland waterways (Shannon, Grand Canal) are exclusively for recreational sports. Of the 40 or so airports, the most important are: Dublin with 30 million passengers per year (2018), Cork with 2.5 million and Shannon Airport with 1.8 million passengers. In maritime shipping, the well-developed ferry traffic with Great Britain and France is particularly important. The main ferry ports are Rosslare, Dun Laoghaire and Cork; largest trading ports Dublin and Cork.

Culture

Especially Celtic and British Irish culture have influenced. This can be seen in myths and legends such as the goblin leprechaun and the wheel cross in cemeteries.
