Hey,
There are not too many “off licence” establishments but there are far too many supermarket and petrol station off licences.
Keep alcohol connected to the pubs and take it out of shops and service stations and by the way I love a pint and do not own a pub.

The government could be looking at regulating the market.

    It’s called convenience. On your way home from a hard week’s work on a Friday evening, you can make one stop in to your local Centra, Mace or whatever & pick up dinner, wine, beer at a reasonable price. You can even fill the tank with diesel while you’re at it. Makes sense to me!

    Martin,
    There are too many alcohol outlets for what? What is the harm in having the thing you want to buy in the shop you are going to be in?

    And as for keeping alcohol connected to the pubs! You’ve been listening to the vintners BS too much.
    I wouldn’t drink the piss that comes out the taps of the taps of most pubs.
    A cosy cartel is what the pubs of Ireland are. Their profits are down so they are trying to use political means to get punters back in the doors. This is a scandal At the expense of the consumer. A high percentage of TD’s own or are from families that own pubs.

    Strict Regulation is a big part of Ireland’s alcohol problem.
