Central Statistics Office figures show that the value of goods exported from Ireland fell slightly in May compared with April.
The CSO said just under €9.17 billion worth of goods were exported during May, down 1 per cent from April's figure. Imports increased, however, by 7 per cent to €5.2 billion, lowering the trade surplus to €3.96 billion. The surplus had been €4.4 billion in April. These figures are adjusted to take seasonal variations into account.
