DUBLIN (Reuters) - The Irish statistics service on Tuesday revised the country's unemployment rate for July up to 5.9 percent from an estimate of 5.1 percent published four weeks ago.

The revision followed a quarterly survey of the labour market, and the Central Statistics Office said it planned to revise its methodology for monthly unemployment estimates.
