Ireland

Following are all the Abba, Agnetha Fältskog, Frida and related singles and albums for Ireland. These are from the Official Top 30 singles chart, with current information coming from the IRMA web site. For an excellent searchable archive, go to The Irish Charts - recommended. Before the introduction of over-the-counter sales tracking, the Irish Charts were compiled from record company ship-out statistics. In other words, the charts were based on the supply to retail rather than the sale to the consumer. This was the case through to 1992.

Ireland had no official albums chart until after Abba's time. During I Have A Dream's chart run, industrial action meant there were no charts for a number of months; they returned again when The Winner Takes It All was charting.

Thanks to Carl Magnus Palm, Martin O'Riordan, Jack McCarthy, Dean Scapolo, Tino Bensen, Seamus Kennedy and Colin Hughes. Special thanks to Vaughan Davies for the weeks at number 1 information, from his "Abba Channel Islands Newsletter", January 1980 issue.

Key to Abbreviations:

Date: This is the date the single first appeared in the chart.
Title: The title of the single. With singles, if there are two titles listed on one line, that single was considered a double A side.
HP(1): The highest position the item reached in the charts, and if a number 1, how many weeks spent at that position.
TI: This stands for "Times In" which is basically how many weeks the item spent on the charts.
Catalogue: The catalogue number assigned by the local record company for the single.
