Nearly 4,000 people attended alcohol services in Tallaght in 2013, with a marked increase reported this year in the number of females accessing services.

While lots of work is happening on the ground in relation to alcohol abuse, with the Tallaght Drugs and Alcohol Task Force also completing an Alcohol Action Plan for Dublin 24, calls have been made for the Government to fully implement the Alcohol Bill.

At a meeting on September 25, the country’s 14 local Drugs and Alcohol Task Force’s, which locally have offices in Tallaght, Clondalkin, Ballyfermot and D12, called on the Government to implement the proposed bill.
