We estimate a gravity equation for bilateral manufacturing trade between 28 developed countries from 1970 to 1992. Using the results as benchmark, we find that North-South trade in Ireland is greater rather than less than might be expected. The finding is robust with respect to a wide range of alternative specifications and alternative ways of measuring the key variables.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Economic and Social Studies, Dublin||Journal:||The Economic and Social Review||Volume:||30||Issue:||4||Start page:||381||End page:||401||Copyright (published version):||Copyright 1999, Economic and Social Studies||Keywords:||Southern Ireland; North-South trade||Subject LCSH:||Manufacturing industries--Ireland
