Irish retail sales increased by 2.6 percent in August

DUBLIN, Sept 27 (Reuters) – Irish retail sales increased by 2.6 percent in August from a year earlier, provisional figures from the Central Statistics Office showed on Friday.

Sales volumes fell by 1.6 percent from a month earlier, in part due to a decline in car sales due to the impact of a new licensing system. Excluding car sales, retail sales decreased 0.2 percent compared to July.
