Irish shoppers spent more than €1 billion euro at supermarkets over the Christmas period for the first time ever.

The latest figures from Kantar show sales were up 1.5% when compared with the same time in 2018.

Sales of alcohol dropped by €10.5 million euro, with shoppers spending around 5% less on beer and 2% less on wine.

Many people opted for alcohol-free options instead, with soft drink sales up 2.7%.

It seemed brussel sprouts, carrots, parsnips and potatoes weren't on as many Christmas menus as usual either, with sales all taking a dip.

The number of people buying turkey also fell by 3%.
