Ah, St. Patrick’s Day, slowly being overtaken in bibulous prominence by Cinco de Mayo.

Lord Levene told the annual dinner of the Institute of Directors that the Irish government has set an example for other European states to follow in trying to contain compensation costs, but the problem was now a global one.

Ireland was fast turning into the lawsuit capital of Europe a few years ago, with a negative impact on its business reputation, but much has been done to improve the situation,’ he said.
