Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Irish state still pays its civil servants enough that they don't have to resort to more or less veiled extortion of their clients just to make ends meet.

So no, Ireland is not one of the most corrupt countries in the world. Yet. But not for lack of trying.
