Well.. I see both sides of the argument .. I’m from west rural Ireland, but im lucky, i live close enough to a town so I can walk to a pub, I know plenty that can’t and they also can’t afford €10-20 for a 5-10 minute taxi trip.. It’s sad.. I don’t agree with drinking & driving but whether you care or not, it’s the people in the country that are suffering the most..no proper bus facilities either.. Unless you want to go to the pub on the 1pm bus and come home on the last bus which is the 6pm in my town! No easy answer to this at all..just count yourself lucky if you live in the city and don’t be so quick to judge people that aren’t …
