Cost of living poll: Tell us how inflation is affecting you and your family
Irish people are facing a cost of living crisis as the price of energy, fuel and food have increased with inflation at its highest rate in 22 years.
The latest data from the Central Statistics Office (CSO) shows the annual rate of inflation rose to 7% in April.
The price of meat, bread, cereals, milk, cheese and eggs have all increased.
Diesel is over 40% higher than a year ago while petrol is 24% higher.
Electricity bills are 28% higher and gas bills took a big jump and are now just over 50% higher than April last year.
Home heating oil is just over 90% higher than a year ago, according to the CSO.
The Irish Mirror wants to hear from the public on how they are coping with the increase in the cost of living.
We want to hear your views on what you think the Government should do to help ease the burden on the Irish public.
The Government has already introduced a number of measures to help people with soaring bills such as a €200 energy credit, cutting excise duty on fuel and extending the fuel allowance for some.
But is this enough?
We would like our readers to take our cost of living poll to help highlight the struggles facing Irish households nationwide.
