Kildare? Mayo? This county in Ireland has the largest amount of binge drinkers

Can you guess?

Ever wonder which county consumes the most alcohol?

Released data from the Central Statistics Office in 2017 has revealed everything from who the biggest binge drinkers are to which county gets up the earliest for work in the morning.

The CSO figures show that Dublin has the largest amount of binge drinkers, with Dubs consuming six units of alcohol or more on a night out.

Workers in Dublin also get up earlier than anyone else to commute to work, with more than 30 percent getting up before 7.30am to make their way to work.

Roscommon has the highest amount of privately owned cars, while Dublin has the lowest amount, which is quite understandable.

Dublin is also home to women who have the fewest babies in the country, while Longford, Cavan and Waterford have the most babies.

Meanwhile, Donegal has the lowest amount of women in local government seats, and Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown have the most.

Nine out of ten people in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown also have access to broadband internet, which is the most in the county, while Leitrim has the lowest at 58 percent.
