When is the Date of the Budget in 2019 ?

The Budget for a given year is always announced in the previous year – so the date of Budget 2020  will be October 8th 2019 – which falls on a Tuesday.

For many years, prior to Budget 2014, Budget Day was held in the first week of December – just before the start of the Christmas shopping season.
Since Budget 2014 – the date of the Irish Budget announcement has been in the early part of  October to fit in with EU budget dates and timetables.

October Budgets – coming just after the Dail’s long summer holiday  – means less time for leaks and rumours than there was in the days of December budgets.

We have some idea of the general scope of Budget 2020  – it is generally expected to be positive with possible tax cuts and spending increases totalling about €700 million overall.
