Just How Long Is A Donkey's Year? This Infographic Answers Every Question About 'Irish' Time
So that's what people mean when they say "I'm in the taxi!"
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.

Why is EBS so interested in Irish time? Because EBS will meet to discuss mortgages ‘Anytime’ – and when we say ‘Anytime’, we really mean any time; mornings, evenings, weekends, in a mo, in a min, even in a donkey’s year.
So, that inspired us to explore Irish people’s unique relationship with time in the first ‘Big Survey of Irish Time’; what we say, and what we really mean.
