Abstract

Working on this dissertation has helped the author to understand better the sometimes complex goings-on in the Financial Markets in Ireland and also to a certain extent in Europe. The incredible changes experienced by the Financial Markets in Europe over the last few years have been caused by the program of integration on ever level between member states of the European Union. The free movement of capital has had the most profound results. The free flow of capital can be seen in the high numbers of overseas investors in the Irish Market, in 1989 just four percent of investor hailed from overseas, today it is closer to seventy nine percent. These foreign investors have inadvertently helped to fuel the "Celtic Tiger" and at the same time have recognised the potential of Irish companies.
The authors interest in the Financial Market in Ireland will not end with this dissertation. He hopes a future career lies ahead for him in the Irish Market or possibly on the Continent.
