DUBLIN (Reuters) - Ireland’s unemployment rate fell to a 10-year low of 5.3 percent in November from a revised 5.4 percent in September, the central statistics office said on Tuesday.

The jobless rate has fallen from 6.4 percent a year ago and a financial crisis-peak of 16 percent in 2012, when Ireland was midway through a three-year international bailout.
