All’s well in Ireland, except for the rise in costs…

Dublin: Ireland has the highest male life expectancy in the European Union.

Despite having the EU’s third-fastest-growing population, Ireland has the reputation of being the most expensive country.

The agency’s Measuring Ireland’s Progress report puts Ireland ahead of other European countries across a range of metrics, from social and economic to environmental and health.

Ireland has grown at the third-fastest rate in the EU over the past 10 years.

Between 2012 and 2022, the proportion of Ireland’s population aged 45 and up increased from 34.9 percent to 40.2 percent, while the proportion under 45 fell from 65 percent to 59.8 percent.

Male life expectancy in Ireland was 80.8 years in 2020, the highest of any EU member state, 3.3 years higher than the EU average, and a 22.2-year increase over 1926 figures.

Women’s life expectancy is now 84.4 years, 1.2 years higher than the EU average and 25.5 years higher than in 1926 figures.

Despite having the EU’s fastest-growing economy, Ireland still has the highest prices for basic goods and services. Prices are still 43.8 percent higher on average than the EU average.

In 2011, prices in Ireland were 21.2 percent higher than the average, the fifth highest in the EU, but prices in Ireland compared to the EU average have ‘increased every year since then’, according to figures from the Office for National Statistics, with housing costs the highest.
