Dunnes stayed at 23.7% and SuperValu at 20% [Kantar]. Lidl and Aldi pushed combined share to 8.8% from 7.9%. Asda and Sainsbury's have no stores in Ireland but had gained a 2.7% share from cross-border shoppers.
That fell to 1.7% as Irish price cuts and deflation, plus a rise in UK VAT, reduced numbers going north. Tesco said sales at its 11 Irish border stores were up 33%.
