The outside world applauded last December when Ireland unveiled its harshest budget in a generation. Stinging cuts and higher taxes were needed to tame a runaway public deficit and give the limping Celtic Tiger some of its roar back, officials said. Three months later, Ireland has become something of a poster boy for good behavior in bad times, held up as an example to Europe's other debt-laden economies, particularly Greece. Analysts say that by biting the bullet, the Irish government has managed to hang on to a degree of investor confidence and lay the foundation for an eventual return to economic growth.
