Ireland remains top of EU binge-drinking league table

Ireland has again come top of the latest EU league table on binge-drinking.

Just over one-third of Irish respondents to the latest Eurobarometer survey on the issue say they usually consume five or more drinks in one session.

This is way ahead of Finland with 27%, Britain with 24% and Denmark with 23%.

Elsewhere, just 2% of Italians and Greeks and 4% of Portuguese nationals say they binge drink.
