Money is now major worry for 70pc of people

YEARS of worry over money and debt have taken a toll on Irish families, a new survey for the Samaritans reveals.

It shows people are far more worried about money than they were a year ago with 70pc of respondents putting money and debt in their top worries – a 6pc rise from last year.

The poll carried out by YouGov for the charity shows that concerns over money were higher among women (73pc) than men (67pc).

"It's clear that a large majority of Irish people are very worried about money," said Pio Fenton, chairperson of the Samaritans.
