A research team recently set out to get to the bottom of Irish drinking habits and made some interesting discoveries.

Their subjects were a group of University College Dublin students who among those polled admitted to the highest levels of alcohol consumption.

They were asked about their families and their hometowns among several other topics.

Most parental and domestic matters proved to be of little significance when the group’s questionnaire results were tabulated and assessed.

The researchers saw no correlations emerge among factors like mother’s age, father’s education, income, or parental marital status.

They did see consistencies involving the drinking behaviors of the subjects’ parents, especially the mothers’. While only sons of fathers who drank had a tendency to do more of it in college, both sons and daughters were affected by imbibing mothers.

Contrary to popular belief, the weather in their hometowns had nothing to do with it.

According to the World Health Organization, despite their reputation the Irish are not the world’s biggest drinkers – that would be the Moldovans followed by the Czechs.

Overall, the former Soviet states and Europe lead the world in drinks consumed per year.
