The paper documents ongoing job creation and job destruction within 3-
digit Irish manufacturing sectors over the period 1973 to 1994. Within sectors of
low-technology manufacturing, this was due to the gradual development of
historical export product lines and gradual decline in historical domestic oriented
production. In contrast, the structural change in jobs within sectors of hightechnology
manufacturing resulted from the gradual accumulation of foreign capital
with new export product lines and a phasing out of inefficient import substituting
industry. Ireland’s industrial performance is shown to be an outcome of such path
dependent structural change.
