    From IRMA:


    Certifications in Ireland are as follows:

    Albums:
    Gold: 7,500 units sold
    Platinum: 15,000 units sold

    Singles:
    Silver: 7,500 units sold
    Gold: 10,000 units sold
    Platinum: 15,000 units sold

    There are no average single sales as it depends on the release of new repertoire, but on a slow week 500 sales could make the Top 20.

    There are no average album sales as it depends on the release of new repertoire, but on a slow week 400 sales could make the Top 20.

    I think it actually works out pretty similar to the UK when you consider the size of the populations of each. Someone compared them this way the last time I posted that info here - I'll see if I can find the original post...

    I read an article (in one of the Irish newspapers...can't remember which one now) that said a typical Irish Number 1 single sold between 3,000 and 5,000 copies. That was while Cher's "Believe" was Number 1.

    WHY do you say he's a fake?

    Well if on a SLOW week the number 20 is selling around 500 copies a number 1 selling 3-5 thousand is a possibilty.

    Well then I guess Ireland is a good market considering its small population (4.1 million, if I remember correctly)

    Thanks a lot Nelson. Why did you say that?

    The potential British market is exactly 15 times larger than the Irish market (4 million vs 60 million) so the Irish level for a number 1 in the late 90s would equate to a weekly sale of 45k to 75k in the UK. In the late 90s, the typical UK number 1 sold anything between 100,000 and 370,000 copies (source: Zobbel Homepage : 1996-1999 figures. The Irish figure is therefore less. What exactly do you see wrong with that figure?

    If you're going to call me a fake, please provide something to back up your claim.
