During a discussion on the harmful use of alcohol, Minster Byrne reaffirmed Ireland’s support for measures to tackle alcohol-related harm. She pointed out, “As with other countries, alcohol is associated with many aspects of Irish social and cultural life. But we cannot ignore the truth about the harms associated with alcohol and the dangers of its misuse and we are committed to tackling this in Ireland. We have published the Public Health (Alcohol) Bill and it is intended to pass this legislation through our Parliament during its next session which begins in the Autumn.”
