TABLE-Ireland's macroeconomic forecasts for 2019-2024

    DUBLIN, Oct 8 (Reuters) - Ireland presented a no-deal Brexit

return to deficit if Britain leaves the European Union without a
deal.
    Below are the government's updated macroeconomic assumptions
based on its central scenario that Britain will quit the bloc
without a transition period to ease the disruption. For
