Ireland rises from its bailout

Ireland has become the first crisis-stricken eurozone country to leave its bailout programme, three years after it was forced to seek international help with its banking sector on the brink of collapse. The BBC's Diarmaid Fleming is live from a bar in Athlone, central Ireland asking whether the pain that many Irish people have gone through has been worth the final result. Also we look back at the week's news with Canadian commentator Ralph Silva and Michael Casey from the Wall Street Journal.
