The price of a pint and a cig

I had no idea of the current price of cigarettes until I saw an advertisement listing new retail prices which came into effect on Friday, the day the VAT rate increased from 20% to 21%. A packet of 20 king-size cigarettes now costs €5.21, or IR4.10 or Stg£3.19 or $4.50. You might also be interested to know that a pint of Guinness can cost as little as €2.85 in Galway if you know where to go and as much as €4 in some Dublin hotels. Typical Dublin prices are €3.30 to $3.45 and perhaps a bit more if you decide to drink in the Temple Bar area.
