“With Irish consumers are now spending €850,000 an hour online, up 20 per cent on four years ago, making Ireland one of the fastest growing digital economies in the world.  The figure was contained in one of two reports, by Minister for Communications Denis Naughten, highlighting the burgeoning strength of e-commerce in Ireland.

The first report on the macro-economic impact of the internet indicated the digital economy here now encompassed 6 per cent of gross domestic product (GDP), equating to €12.3 billion.   However, on the current growth trajectory this will expand to about €21.4 billion or nearly 8 per cent of GDP by 2020.” Source Irish Times
