The reliance on Oil/gas for electricity is partly due to the gas finds off our coast but there is a national target to go 30& renewables by 2020 which seems to be being met ahead of schedule. Our relatively sparse population density doesn't lend itself to rail although it is regrettable we actually reduced rail freight in recent years. Undoubtedly high Oil prices have a disproportionate effect on countries like Ireland because of our high Oil/gas and road dependency. However this effect is dwarfed by the scale of the problems created by our banking sector induced property bubble.
