Drinks Ireland are among the groups lobbying for lower prices. 

Ireland has one of the highest prices of alcohol in the EU.

According to the Price Level Index, Ireland ranks third in Europe.

Alcoholic beverages are 86.9% higher in Ireland compared to the EU average.

Ireland is also the most expensive country for non-alcoholic drinks in Europe.

Groups representing the alcohol industry are asking for the government's protection.

They want to see changes implemented in October's budget.

Patricia Callan of Drinks Ireland wants a cut in excise duty to allow prices to balance out.

She says it costs more to buy Irish products at home than abroad.
