When compared with July last year prices are now 9.4pc higher nationwide.

In Dublin, prices rose 0.7pc in the month, and are up 9pc compared with the month of July last year.

Outside the capital prices were up 1.2pc in July, the CSO said.

Prices in rural areas are now 9.6pc ahead of where they were last year.
