The only exception was the Airline sector which saw spending increase 170% based on the previous month.

The data was compiled from over one million AIB card transactions carried out by Irish consumers online during January this year and it has been anonymised and aggregated.

Roscommon recorded the biggest drop in overall spending during the month, down 18%, while Dublin recorded the smallest drop, down 14%.

At the same time, spending in other sectors decreased as Irish consumers spent less compared with the busy December Christmas period.
