We take an initial step in investigating the international diversification of Irish production risk. We find evidence that Ireland displays some properties associated with international risksharing. These include: high gross stocks of foreign assets and liabilities; high international consumption correlations relative to output correlations; and pro-cyclical behaviour of the yield on net external liabilities.
