Galway Bay fm newsroom – An online price index has outed Galway as the most expensive Irish city to buy a litre of milk.

The list outlines the average price of a litre of milk in over 500 cities around the world.

Figures have revealed that a litre of milk costs an average of €1.37 in Galway city, with Dublin in second place in Ireland at €1.30.
