Smokers are getting hammered again at the tills as the price of a pack of 20 will go up again from midnight tonight.
In Budget 2022, a pack of 20 cigarettes went up by 50c to €15 , but now the government has slapped a further 50c onto that price bringing a pack of 20 up to €15.50.
Other tobacco products are also expected to increase in price, on a pro-rata basis.
Many believe that smokers are now likely to turn to the black market to buy cheap cigarettes.
