@2Pack - We were told the government finances would be in balance this year but I now see this document which sets out
the 2019 Exchequer Borrowing Requirement (EBR) on both a monthly and a cumulative basis
and which states that
Exchequer revenue of €74,308 million is projected for this year. Total Exchequer expenditure
is forecast as €76,698 million, resulting in an EBR of €2,390 million for the year.
Not clear about the discrepancy with the NTMA EBR figure of €2,100 million
