Irish ‘Yes’ Vote on Treaty Would Boost Investment, Gilmore Says

Irish voters approval for the European Fiscal Treaty would help boost investment in the country, Deputy Prime Minister Eamon Gilmore said in an interview with RTE today.

“One of the big questions in making investment decisions in Ireland is: ‘What about the Euro’,” said Gilmore, whose government is holding a referendum on the treaty next month. “It is in our national interests that we remove that uncertainty,” he said, adding that a “yes” vote would be “important if we were ever to seek assistance again from Europe.”
