The Republic of Ireland has been the fastest growing economy in the OECD over
the latter half of the 1990’s, an expansion known as the Celtic Tiger. Some
commentators have commented on the gains from the boom being concentrated
amongst the top of the income distribution. In this paper we shall try to understand
what has happened to inequality over the period 1987-2004 and to understand the
determinants of the changes in inequality.
