The Irish spend 9.5 hours per week moaning

We may be known for our gift of the gab, having 'the craic' and telling stories but it seems that the Irish are top of the list when it comes to having a good moan too.

A new poll says that Irish people send 9.5 hours per week moaning which adds up to a massive 20 days a year.

And what exactly are they spending nearly three weeks of the year moaning about? It seems that weather has come out at number one. Incidentally the weather is also generally the favorite topic of conversation in Ireland.

Other topics top of their list are tiredness, traffic and work.

The poll, according to reports in Breaking News, found that only British people seem to moan more than the Irish.
