While some may say the advancement and growth of technology in Ireland is a more recent development, say within the last decade, it can actually be traced back to the 1950's. Many people still think of Ireland as a group of country farmers and small town people, but it is quite the opposite. The citizens of Ireland have been advancing and expanding as a whole. Just as in America, you will now see people in Ireland emailing and working in large ? companies with the moving in of companies such as IBM and Microsoft.

[...] The foundation of the Celtic Tiger was a Social Partnership, which when defined means everyone is equal, employers treated employees with respect and vice versa, no one person was better than the other.[38] One of the main objectives of the Celtic Tiger was to get rid of the gap the existed between the working class and middle class.[39] The working classes were stereotypically known to live on family farms throughout Ireland, or worked in factories and wore overalls to work.
