The conclusion shows how despite much change Ireland stll remains a state wherein political continuity remains an important theme within Irish life. This is best exemplified by the fact that Fianna Fáil despite presiding over the economic collapse and the ending of Irish economic sovereignty managed to gain the largest amount of votes at the 2014 loal elections. It outlines various reform scenarios and shows how difficult it is for new political options to emerge.
