€10bn for school runs

SCHOOL-run parents in Ireland could be providing as much as €10bn worth of free lifts by the time their children reach 15.

The AA, which carried out a hypothetical calculation, said the majority of these 'earnings' would go to mums. Of a sample of 2,400 people with children under the age of 12, 64pc of mums compared to 31pc of fathers said they drive their children somewhere at least once a day.
