Ireland ranked top of international quality-of-life table

An international firm that compiles information and analysis for the business sector is claiming that Irish people have the highest quality of life in the world.

Reports this morning said the Economist Intelligence Unit had put Ireland at the top of its league table of 180 countries when it came to quality of life.

This is despite complaints from Irish citizens about the astronomical cost of housing and childcare, the poor state of the health service, traffic gridlock and rip-off prices.

This morning's reports said the EIU's calculations were based on a number of indicators including political freedom, family and community life, climate and gender equality.

Civilised Europe is 'the greatest'
