Today, December 7th, 2010, Ireland’s government will set out the toughest budget the country has seen in thirty years. Over €6 billion will be cut from the country’s budget by the Fianna Fáil and Green coalition government. As the country has already seen violent protests by students, passionate debate in the media, collapse of the coalition and an €85 billion bailout of the state, Irish web users are expected to react strongly to the government’s proposals. We are putting together a list of websites and links where you can watch the live budget announcement. If you have any suggestions, let us know on twitter @thesociable.
- RTE News Now will be broadcasting the budget live on the RTE Player here
- TV3’s recently launched live TV stream will show the budget live here
- Merrionstreet.ie will also be showing the budget announcement live here
