Don't get me started on that!!I lived there for 2 years a couple of years ago. Whilst diesel was a little bit cheaper than it was in UK (the one thing that you didn't get queues at in Newry, just over the border in Northern Ireland!), but you paid for that in the fact that you had to pay 25% to 30% Vehicle Registration Tax on top of the list price of your car, then the cost of your annual road tax wasridiculous. I had a BMW 330D at the time. Car Tax in UK was about £250 a year (or something like that), but in Ireland it used to cost me €1150 per year!! No wonder that unlike in the UK, you can pay for it quarterly, instead of the 6 monthly or yearly like here!!I used to want to cry every three months when the tax demand came through my post box!!craigie said:their road tax looks worse than ours!!!
