Dublin has dropped 14 places in a new list of the world's most expensive cities, largely due to the euro's decline.

Dublin was ranked at No.72 in the list of cities released by analysts at Mercer, which is used by companies to determine costs for expatriates.

Most European cities slipped in the rankings: Paris, at 37, was down 10 places, while Milan (38), Rome (42), Stockholm (46), Vienna (48) and Amsterdam (57) were all down from seven to 13 places.
