These are the economics results for the most recent Research Assessment Exercise for the UK.
The first numeric column reports the number of staff returned in the subject for each institution: UK departments are comparable in size to many Irish ones.

Like some Irish deparments, many UK departments are also developing new talent.
Now compare their position in the Tilburg ranking https://econtop.uvt.nl/ to Irish departments.
Everyone still happy?
