Redundant government?

While all of official Ireland is congratulating the government for sealing the EU Constitution deal, I have a question. If being the EU president is such a massive undertaking for a small state and getting that Constitution agreement was such a mamoth task at the end of this massive undertaking, what are all those government employees doing when Ireland is not at the helm of the EU?

Will there be significant lay-offs on July 1?
