The group, which represents retailers in Ireland, said more customers are shopping online with UK retailers and going north of the border to take advantage of the weaker sterling.

Major shopping days such as Cyber Monday and Black Friday have gathered momentum in recent years, and Retail Ireland director Thomas Burke said the data suggests a “structural shift in pre-Christmas consumer shopping patterns” with more people than ever buying early.
