Ireland’s national debt is increasing at the rate of €593 every SECOND, €35,578 every MINUTE, €2.1m every HOUR and €51.2m every DAY!

That is according to Fine Gael’s Leo Varadkar who has a special section on his website to illustrate just how fast our national debt is spiraling upwards.

His debt clock is not about ‘scoring political points’, but rather to help inform the Irish people as to ‘the massive millstone of debt that has been built up over the past two years and is growing by the second’.

So by the time you have read this short piece, our national debt will have increased by €11,859.
