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%.
