Irish domestic energy prices (including taxes)

How Does Ireland's Home Energy Prices Compare?

So, looking at the official Eurostat data for a typical home in Ireland the following are the price per unit of energy for Electricity and Gas (Jan -Jun ‘13).  Simply put we are above average for electricity (over 25% more expensive than the UK... so why is there so much fuss in the UK about energy prices!) and about average for gas prices (again typically 20% above the UK gas prices, which is where over 90% of Ireland's gas comes from).
