You may remember Liz and Joe Dennis, a couple in their early 40s who live in a former council house on Dublin's northside.

They featured on RTE's financial makeover programme Show Me the Money last year. Liz works in catering and Joe is a security guard.

At the time the programme was made, Liz was earning about €22,000 a year and Joe around €20,500. Their combined after-tax income was about €35,000.
