According to new research, Irish people drink on average more than 10 litres of alcohol per year.

It's the equivalent of 40 bottles of vodka, 113 bottles of wine or 436 pints of beer.

The Health Research Board has found that alcohol consumption levels have plateaued since 2013, but people's consumption remains "significantly higher" than the government's 2020 target of no more than 9.1 litres of pure alcohol per person a year.

Professor Frank Murray, chair of the Alcohol Health Alliance Ireland, and Christopher Snowdon, Head of Lifestyle Economics at the UK-based Institute of Economic Affairs, joined us to discuss this.
