Budget 2018 will have ” no fireworks” and no “big bonanza”, according to Taoiseach Leo Varadkar.
But he said the series of tax and spending measures will ensure the country’s books are balanced, as well as giving a little back to hard working families.
Speaking on his way into government buildings ahead of Cabinet, Mr Varadkar confirmed that the budget has been agreed with Fianna Fáil and the Independent Alliance.
Mr Varadkar said an average family with two children will save €500-600 per year as a result of Budget 2018.
And he said it will result in the biggest health and education budgets ever – resulting in more teachers, nurses and doctors.
“It’s a good budget overall. There are no fireworks, no big bonanza. But it is another small sustainable step in the right direction for our county.”
