Is your gaff spending more or less than this?

The Central Statistics Office has revealed the average weekly expenditure for households in Ireland for 2015 and 2016. 

The figures reveal that Irish households are spending €845.12 on average which is up 4.3% from 2009-2010. 

While that figure may seem like a lot to some, spending on alcohol and tobacco is down by a whopping 29% to just €28 a week. 

Spending on transport is up by nearly 7% to €124.39, mainly driven by an increase in car purchases. 

€123 is spent on average on food a week with €97 spent on eating at home and €26 spent on eating out while phone bills (mobile and landline) cost about €20 a week.
