Just under half of Tipperary businesses believe they may go cashless over the next decade.

In the global BOI survey Ireland was found to be a more cashless than 13 other countries participating in the research.

Tipperary has scored above the national average of 47%, with 48% of local companies in the Premier saying they might choose to be ‘fully cashless’ in the near future.

The counties most confident of this transition are Galway at 51% and Dublin at 55%.

Nationally, only 3% of people surveyed do not use card or digital payments in any situation.
