 n.— «Looking back, it can be seen that there was a major decline in consumer confidence throughout 2002, after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, and Ireland’s entry into the euro currency zone. This coincided with growing concerns about what has come to be called ‘rip-off Ireland.”» —“Consumer confidence stalling following recent steady recovery” by Des Byrne The Post (Dublin, Ireland) June 19, 2005.
