Ever wonder how long a donkey's year was?

Or what an Irish person really means when they tell you they'll be "there in a minute"?

Or – the one that plagues us the most – how likely it is someone is being truthful when they say "I'm in a taxi!"

Well wonder no more – this graphic from the EBS's Big Survey of Irish Time has all the answers you could possibly want. And a few more to boot...


To find out when was the best time to meet for Irish home buyers, EBS surveyed just over 1,000 respondents from a nationally representative sample of the Irish population on the 15th August 2015.
