Irish Life Expectancy Improves

The life expectancy of Irish people improved by four years during the Celtic tiger era, according to a new World Health Organisation (WHO) report.

In the year 2000 the combined life expectancy for men and women here was 76 years but this had climbed to 80 years by 2007. In contrast, life expectancy only improved by one year -- from 75 to 76 -- between 1990 and 2000.
