THE IRISH public consuming a whopping 300,000 pints of beer every single day.
That’s according to figures quoted in a new documentary set to air on RTÉ One entitled One Day: How Ireland Unwinds [via Breaking News].
The film documents the various vices and activities the people of Ireland indulge in during their spare time - and it would appear alcohol plays a pretty major role.
While beer remain the tipple of choice for most Irish folk, wine isn’t far behind with the documentary claiming an astonishing 200,000 bottles are sunk over the average 24-hour period.
The pull of the pub remains as strong as ever with How Ireland Unwinds revealing more than 140,000 people visit one of Ireland’s 7,000 pubs over the average working day.
These trips amount to an estimated 300,000 pints, 200,000 bottles of wine and an additional 65,000 shorts.
That all adds up to one hell of a hangover - but the Irish aren't just about trips to the pub.
Elsewhere, the documentary shines a light ion Ireland’s enduring love affair with the cinema.
It estimates that somewhere in the region of €300,000 is spent on cinema tickets every day while a further €3.8m goes on snacks and drinks at the cinema over the same time period.
All told, the Irish public spend somewhere in the region of €22m on meals out, cinema trips, pampering days and other events.
One Day: How Ireland Unwinds will be shown at 9:35pm on RTÉ One this Monday, February 17.
