Irish people have been dubbed the most affluent people in Europe, but how much of their income is going to go to clothes and what will go towards education?
The Irish Times has compiled data to try and answer this question.
The figures also show the differences between Ireland and other European countries.
The Irish pay the highest average wages in Europe.
The median annual wage in Ireland is €11,000 and it is even higher in the South, where the average is €21,000.
But there are some interesting differences in the ways people earn their money.
The median Irish person earns €3,300 more per year than their German, Spanish, French and British counterparts.
This means the Irish have the highest wage gap in the EU.
The Irish pay more than twice as much per year as the British.
The average salary in France is €19,600, compared to €8,100 in Ireland.
The French pay more per hour of work than the Irish do.
But while the Irish pay higher wages per hour, they also pay more for education.
The average Irish university student is paid €890 more than the German average, while the average salary of a UK university student has increased by €5,600.
This could be partly due to the high cost of living in the UK.
The UK has the third highest average salary among the 28 EU countries.
However, this does not necessarily mean that Irish people are earning the highest incomes in the world.
The Dutch are among the most generous countries in Europe in terms of income per person.
This means that the Dutch pay more in taxes than the average person in the rest of the EU, and are the highest paid in Europe according to the World Bank.
But when it comes to education, Ireland ranks among the least generous in Europe with an average salary per pupil of just €9,500.
While the Irish people do pay the most in taxes per capita in Europe at €1,500, the figure is lower than in most other countries.
However, Ireland has the lowest average income per pupil in the OECD with just €1.20 per pupil.
The most affluent country in EuropeThe Irish people pay a lot in taxes and the country has the highest proportion of people living in poverty in the eurozone.
However Ireland also has one of the highest levels of public spending per capita, with €2,500 spent on health care and €1 billion spent on education.
This is mainly due to its public transport system.
The country spends more than €3 billion a year on public transport and the average distance travelled is just over 22 kilometres.
However while public transport is one of Ireland’s main sources of income, the country also spends the most on housing and social services, particularly housing for the elderly.
The top 5 wealthiest countries in the euro areaThe data shows that the Irish are among Europe’s most expensive countries to live in, with average salaries of €24,800 per year.
But this does have to do with the Irish being the most expensive of all European countries to buy a house.
This is because the average house price in Ireland for a single person is just €16,300, while in the other 27 EU countries the average price is €53,000 or more.
Ireland’s housing marketThe Irish housing market is dominated by the largest housing companies in the country.
However the average rent in Ireland this year is just slightly higher than in the United Kingdom and France.
This could be due to higher house prices in Ireland, but also due to Irish property values being overvalued.
The total average price of a property in Ireland has risen by €20,600 over the last five years.
The number of houses in the market is also down from the years before the global financial crisis, with the average number of properties being reduced by 7,700.
However there are still some very affordable properties in the Dublin and Cork areas, such as the historic home of Sir Edward Coke.
The house was purchased by a private investor in 2013 for just €7.1 million, making it one of only two properties in Ireland to be listed for €7 million.
The cheapest place to buy property in the cityThe average rent for a house in Dublin and Dublin city is €944 per week.
This includes a small monthly deposit of €30.00.
However this includes accommodation costs and a deposit for a second mortgage, which can be up to €600.
This also includes council tax.
The house has been listed for a little more than 10 years and the price has been set at €80 million, but is only €12 million in the Guinness Book of Records.
This does mean that the house is affordable to most Irish people.
The highest cost of rent in the USThe average US house price is $1.85 million.
This excludes any mortgages and interest, which makes the average US home a little over half a million dollars.
However despite this, most people in the Irish economy live in
