By 1972, forty years of protectionism and fifteen years of export promotion induced the coexistence of large exporting plants with import competing plants within 4-digit industries. During trade liberalisation we document persistent horizontal waves of creative destruction, a decline in traditional import competing plants and an expansion in exporting plants, within each sector. This coexisted with rapid vertical waves of creative destruction in small non-exporting plants which supported exporting growth through forward vertical linkages within each sector.||Funding Details:||This paper was funded by a Government of Ireland Research Fellowship||Type of material:||Working Paper||Publisher:||UCD Geary Institute||Series/Report no.:||UCD Geary Institute Discussion Paper Series; WP/40/2007||Copyright (published version):||2008 Geary Institute||Keywords:||Manufacturing employment; Structural change; Trade liberalisation||Subject LCSH:||Manufacturing industries--Ireland
