Ladies and Gentlemen. It is an honour for me to be asked to open this important conference. I want to thank the CEO and Chair of Alcohol Action Ireland for the kind invitation.

It will be, I’m sure, a timely and worthwhile contribution to public debate about alcohol, its harms and what we can do to mitigate them. For those of you visiting for the first time, welcome to Ireland and to Dublin.

We in Ireland are famous the world over for our drinking culture - just about every city in the world celebrates the Irish fondness for drink with an ‘Irish Pub’. Drinking is associated with our ‘gift of the gab’, our sociability and our artistic nature.
