Credit Products - Ireland - August 2013
“Having peaked in 2008, the value of credit card transactions in Ireland has declined every year since. In 2012, the total value of transactions was precisely 25% down on the level seen in 2008. Although this is partly due to dramatically reduced consumer spending, there has been a noticeable shift away from credit cards towards debit cards – and this may indicate a shift in Irish consumers' attitudes towards credit, borrowing and debt.”
Brian O’Connor, Production Manager
