Irish government to reveal austerity measures

Ireland's embattled Prime Minister is unveiling his list of spending cuts and tax hikes to get the country's finances in order.

The four-year plan targets total cuts of 15bn euros ($20bn; £13bn), or 11% of the Irish economy's annual output.

Brain Cowen says it could take months to vote through the measures but neither he nor his government may last that long.

John Moylan reports.
