It’s taken two days, €2.2 billion in cuts and €1.6 billion in taxes – but we finally know exactly what’s on the table for next year’s Budget.

Our Readers’ Panel spoke to readers from across the country about how they are going to be affected by the changes announced by Michael Noonan and Brendan Howlin over the past two days.

They talked about the VAT increase, the Household Charge, motor tax, the cuts in disability allowance to young people – and lots more.
