Disposable incomes in Donegal were the fourth lowest in the State in 2019, new CSO figures show.
The average disposable income in Donegal was €17,479 per person – almost 20% lower than the countrywide average of €22,032.
Meanwhile, the average disposable income in Dublin was 17% higher than the state average at €25,696.
On a regional basis, the biggest gap was between Dublin and the Border and Midlands regions.
Donegal incomes have recorded a rise in the past decade, increasing from a low of €14,488 in 2014.
John Milne, CSO Statistician, said: “Dublin, Limerick, Kildare and Cork, in that order, were the only counties where per capita disposable income exceeded the state average in 2019, while Westmeath, Donegal, Offaly, Longford and Laois earned significantly less than the state average.”
