Ireland's unemployment rate has fallen to a 5-1/2 year low of 11%, reflecting the country's steady rebound from a debt crisis and international bailout. Growth figures, credit ratings, property sales and job opportunities all have gained this year following Ireland's December 2013 exit from a three-year loan rescue by the European Union and International Monetary Fund. Wednesday's report from the Central Statistics Office found that unemployment last month fell a further tenth of a percentage point to 11%. That's the 28th straight monthly fall from a 2012 peak of 15.1%. Unemployment in the 18-nation eurozone stands at 11.5%. Ireland's jobless pressure was eased by heavy emigration to Great Britain, Canada, Australia and the United States. More than 60,000 people have moved away every year since 2009.
