21 percent of drivers disqualified for being over the legal limit re-offend according to figures published in Irish Country Living.
The report says an average of one in 5 motorists put off the road for drink driving have been banned at least twice.
Thats the national average though and Carlow falls well below that with just 7 percent of previously banned drivers re-offending.
The figure for Kilkenny is 18 percent.
Leitrim, Kerry, Donegal, Dublin and Monaghan are the worst -reoffenders according to figures from the Dept of Transport
