2019 Annual Price Survey

The Market review and Price survey was carried out in two Dublin locations: city centre and north county; one regional city: Sligo, and one town: Longford, by Alcohol Action Ireland between 24 -26 July 2019.

A range of convenience stores and supermarkets were surveyed: Aldi, Centra, Dunnes, Lidl, Spar, Supervalu and Tesco.
