The article reports that the Irish economy grew strongly over the third quarter of 2007, at a slightly more measured rate than in the first half of the year. The growth in Ireland is expected to be more modest in 2008 than in 2007, with the slow housing market contributing to a contraction in investment and easing consumer spending growth. However, business investment contracted in the third quarter and was led lower by falling output from the construction sector.
