Irish women may think they're just pouring themselves one glass of wine a day, but a new study shows they're actually having three pub measures.

The global research published in the Lancet Medical Journal means that puts Irish women seventh in the world when it comes to boozing, ranking them higher than men.

Academics at the University of Washington have found that Irish men have around four and half drinks a day but don't make it into the top ten male consumers.

The report which is published in the Lancet Medical Journal warns that women may think that having one glass of wine isn't harmful - but they're actually pouring themselves three measures.

The study says just one drink a day can slightly increase the chances of contracting 23 alcohol-related health problems.

Ukrainian women are the biggest boozers in the world while Romanian men are the biggest drinkers.
