ACCORDING TO NEW research, Ireland is the most optimistic country in the world.  Yep, we came top of a list of countries with the most positive outlook, followed by Brazil, Denmark, New Zealand and the United States.

Can you believe it?  You probably can, because you’re that optimistic.

We were a little surprised by this news, so decided to spend some time considering the evidence.  As it turns out, there are many pieces of evidence which support these findings.
