RESEARCH SUGGESTS THAT one in five Irish people have not had a drink in the last year.

Yesterday, TheJournal.ie posted the experiences of two teetotallers in Irish cities, both of whom say that going to pubs and nightclubs can be an unpleasant experience for those not imbibing.

Many in the comments and through email agreed, but what about you? Would you do it? Have you done it? How was it? Let us know in the comments.
