Yeah, but this is the average of every citizen.






Very true but those few dumbasses who blow every cent they make at the bar Im sure bring it up alot.

Edited to add

Median Per Captia income $23,030

So approx 10% of income spent on drinking

I'm in Dublin right now, as I'm over on business. I have been here for the last 3 weeks, and man can I say the pub scene is crazy. They do drink tons, and most of the sterotypes are for real. One thing that is nice (I'm not a smoker) is the ban on smoking in pubs.

I wanted to note that the normal income is LESS than what we make in the US but everything costs more (alot more).

To put that in relative terms, they drink more, make less, and it's more expensive to boot.

I have no idea but it can't be great. And yes, I'm sure there are a significant portion of the populous who jack up those averages significantly.

MAN - that's a LOT of drinking! Holy cow.

No wonder they make so many jokes about the Irish and alcohol.


wow
