Alcohol advertising ban to start November 2019

The groundbreaking public health legislation will force shop-owners to erect barriers hiding alcohol.

The 23 sections of the Public Health Alcohol Bill will come into operation next Monday after Mr Harris signed the order for the radical legislation.

The Fine Gael minister said: “This is the first time in the history of our State that we have endeavoured to use public health legislation to address issues in respect of alcohol. It is, therefore, a groundbreaking measure.

“For the very first time in our history, we are legislating for alcohol as it affects our health and it is right and proper that we do so.”

Under the new rules, several types of advertising will be restricted, while physical barriers must be put up in supermarkets or retail units selling alcohol.
