Jobless figure 'to fall below 9pc'
Joblessness is set to drop to less than nine in every 100 people while workers across the country can expect pay rises, business leaders have forecast.
Ibec, which represents employers, said the value of the economy should grow by 5.4pc this year.
This would make Ireland the best performing economy in Europe. In its latest economic outlook report, the business representative organisation said this would lead to unemployment dropping below 9pc.
