Disquiet Follows Irish Science Budget Cut and Policy Shift : ScienceInsider.

Interesting blogpost at Science from Sean Duke regarding the recent budget.

Money quote:

One leading academic, who did not wish to be named, said the budget was “very depressing” for scientists and engineers working in the public-funded sector in Ireland. “We feel that we have piloted an entrepreneurial spirit into the public sector and have championed innovation. Yet we take a blanket salary cut. We are a highly mobile sector, and some had turned down lucrative job offers enticing them to Singapore and the U.S., decisions that some are now regretting.”
