The Government Is Considering Banning The Sale Of Alcohol After A Certain Time Of Day

It's among the measures being looked at to curb on-street drinking

 

Tanaiste Leo Varadkar says work is underway on new public health regulations to strengthen the law in this area.

He says the issue is not straight forward when it comes to laws on take-away pints:

"We are looking at other measures around the sale of alcohol but it's actually not that straightforward. You know people say takeaway pints are a problem ban them - but you you can't actually just do that you would have to ban all takeaway alcohol"
