Irish people are the third most generous in Europe

Ireland is the third most generous country in Europe and is listed among the top ten most generous countries in the world.

That’s according to the annual index by the Charities Aid Foundation which measures the proportion of people who give to charity, who volunteer their time and who helped a stranger in the past month.
