Ireland: "5th BEST place to live in the world" (UN)

In probably our last appearance for a while to come, Ireland is the 5th best place to live in the world - according to the Human Development Index of the UN.
Ahead of us are:
  • Norway (as usual)
  • Australia
  • Iceland
  • Canada
Just below us is:
  • Netherlands
  • Sweden
  • France
  • Switzerland
Pretty impressive company we're keeping! Until you realise this list is based on 2007 data.
So, while Norway, Australia & Canada will probably remain, we ourselves - as they used to say on Sesame Street - don't belong any more.
In my mind's eye, I can already see the steely hand of HDI security on Ireland's metaphorical shoulder as we are politely instructed to leave the party, we have overstayed our welcome.
