Work, travel and health are the things Irish people worry about


When you wake up in the morning, what is the first thing you worry about?

It's safe to say that in this day and age we all have a lot to worry about, however a new survey has revealed just what is on the nation's mind.

And, it turns out that work is the biggest worry for Dubliners.

Research by Royal London, a pension and investment company, questioned 1,000 people and found that 11 per cent of people in Dublin worry about their job, compared to just eight per cent in the rest of the country.

And just as much as we worry about work, we also crave some time away.

The survey found that 17 per cent of Dubs focus on travelling, which is above the national average of 13 per cent.

However, along with work and travel, money tops the list across the whole of Ireland, with 37 per cent of the nation claiming that it's their biggest worry.

We seem to have our priorities in order though, as health came out on top of what the nation focuses on (37 per cent), while career came in second with 26 per cent and travel came in third with 13 per cent.
