The grocery market has slipped into deflation for the first time in almost two years, meaning the cost of the same basket of shopping is becoming cheaper at Irish tills.
Brexit, which has made it cheaper to import groceries from the UK, is the main cause.
Supermarket price inflation fell into negative territory to -0.2pc, according to the latest figures from Kantar Worldpanel in Ireland.
The figures cover the 12 weeks to March 26.
The data suggests that the weaker pound - which is driving up prices for consumers in the UK - is having the opposite effect here where a large volume of supermarket staples arrive from suppliers in Britain.
