Retailers to have three options in how they display alcohol

Retailers will be allowed to display alcohol in three storage units or place it behind a barrier in a compromise deal reached with the Government on new alcohol legislation.

Small traders had sought concessions on the introduction of new regulations in the Public Health (Alcohol) Bill, which sought strict segregation of alcohol from other products in supermarkets and stores. They were concerned about the financial implications and the type and height of structures they would have to construct to separate alcohol from other products.

The proposals also met significant opposition within Fine Gael, with some members saying they unfairly penalised small retailers.
