From an Irish News article a couple of weeks ago
.....(Mr Cullen) also accused Sinn Fein of suggesting Ireland would be better off outside the euro, claiming the single currency was hindering economic development.
"Do they really believe that we would be better off outside the euro?" he asked.
"They claim that infrastructural investment is being hindered by euro membership.
Do they not realise that Ireland's level of capital expenditure is five per cent of GNP a rate that is twice the European average? "It's time for Sinn Fein to face the realities of the world around us. Their regressive and backward economic policies offer no future for anyone."
