Irish people have the fourth highest quality of life in the world


The latest United Nations Development Report ranks the Republic of Ireland fourth in a list of 159 countries in terms of life expectancy, literacy, education and GDP per capita.

Ireland`s average income per head is put at just under €30,000.

Only Australia, Iceland and Norway are ahead of Ireland in the report, however, Ireland trails in the poverty stakes ranking 17th out of 18.

The Irish Republic`s Social and Family Affairs Minister Seamus Brennan is disputing the latter figure saying 250,000 people have been taken out of poverty in the past 10 years.
