Alcohol Action Ireland has has demanded restrictions on the sale of alcohol and for the introduction of a minimum price for alcohol. Good idea, bad idea?
Alcohol Action Ireland is the national charity for alcohol-related issues. It called for all political parties to commit, in the run-up to the election, to doing something about the detrimental impact of alcohol on children.
But do you agree with this idea? Or are you suspicious of the motives of such a ban? Some government parties have a reputation for protecting the interests of Ireland’s publicans (who would presumably profit from such a ban). Let us know.
