    The Irish economy stabilised in broad terms in 2012, despite a challenging international context and ongoing difficulties in the eurozone in particular. Mainly due to a strong services exports performance, GDP grew by just under 1 per cent in 2012. GNP expanded by 3.4 per cent, although closer inspection reveals that this figure overstates the underlying growth activity (see FitzGerald, this issue). Domestic demand contracted once again, although the pace of contraction was much less severe than in any year since 2008. The unemployment rate averaged 14.7 per cent in 2012 while the fall in employment continued.
