IRELAND HAS RANKED 15th in the list of the happiest countries in the world.

The World Happiness Report 2017, published by the United Nations, ranked Ireland ahead of the United Kingdom (19) and just behind the United States (14).

Norway took the top spot. All countries in the top 10 were affluent, developed nations, though the report said that money was not the only ingredient for happiness.

The report also found that the best examples of happiness maintenance after large external shocks were Ireland and Iceland.

So in today’s poll we’re asking, are you happy? 

Poll Results:

Fairly happy  (7680)
Yes (5226)
Fairly unhappy (2227)
No, I'm unhappy  (2087)
