Making Ireland “tobacco-free” by 2025 “won’t be easy but is doable”, the Department of Health’s National Tobacco Control Advisor has told IMT.

Dr Fenton Howell, speaking in advance of his presentation on the Department’s recently released report ‘Tobacco Free Ireland’ at the RCPI Public Health Medicine Winter Scientific Meeting last week (December 11), recalled skepticism before the total smoking ban in workplaces was implemented in 2004.

“No-one believed it would happen and history speaks for itself,” the public health specialist commented.
