This chapter investigates how Europeanisation has impacted on Ireland's economy and the implementation of economic policy. It considers the pre-existing policies and polity that existed prior to European Economic Community (EEC) membership with a view to understanding the underlying domestic political and economic arrangements, which shaped Ireland's economy. This chapter also considers Ireland's significant moves from protectionism to partnership and its adaptation to the strictures of the single market.
