#Jason morris on Feb 12, 2017 :
all comments are the same no matter what town you put in. but the name changes now and then.. so I find the info useless.

Apples I usually by apple either as a bag of 8 small/medium (100-140g) size or tray of 6 medium (180-200g) large both of which weigh these are available in lidi, aldi and less often on offer in tesco, Dunne's and super value. I never pay more then 49c/kg

Potatoes I usually buy 1.5kg bags for 49c except when local potatoes are in season when larger bags are sometimes available much cheaper and occasionally out of season when only 5 or 7.5kg bags are reasonably priced at up to 49c/kg

Onions
Usually available in lidi, aldi and less often on offer in tesco, Dunne's and super value as either 39 or 49c for 1kg nets or preferably nets of 3 very large "Spanish" (local term for a mild onion above 6/7cm diameter) onions for 3 so 1.2/1.6kg for 49c

Fast food meal nearest equivalent to MC Donald's I'd eat is either cheese and onion pie with chip for €1.50, kebabs are €4-6 but less equivalent.

Regarding 1 bedroom apartments in Cork City center: for 900 EUR per month you can also find crap, shitholes. So, the best thing is to avoid center or be ready to pay 1200+ in one of the newer buildings. Avoid small, old Irish buildings in the center.
#Jenn on Jul 09, 2015 :
1 Bedroom apartment rents look off. Just came in from a day of apartment hunting in city center. Try €900+ as a top end number. Anything under €850 is crap.
#Alan on Mar 04, 2015 :
Hmmm...

In the last year the average monthly salary in Cork increased by almost 800 euros according to this website, and is 400 EUR higher than the average wage for Dublin.
This is highly dubious...
Also, I wish they would revert to median rather than average wages.
