Unexpected economic growth raised hopes of recovery but many are still suffering effects of austerity cuts.

Ireland is one of the countries in the eurozone considered to be most at risk of bankruptcy.

But the Irish economy experienced the second highest growth in the EU for part of this year, due to the performance of technology multinationals.

While this has raised some hopes that the country will evade bankruptcy, continuing austerity cuts are causing anger on the streets of Dublin, where protests dubbed "Occupy Dame Street" are taking place outside the country's central bank.
