A typical night out..

We Irish are a nation of piss-heads.

First a few facts.

We Irish top the European binge-drinking league by a country mile

Drinking per capita has increased 17% from 1995 to 2006. 

In 2003, it was reported that chronic liver disease and cirrhosis was the cause of death of half a million Irish people.

Alcohol is a factor in one in three deaths on Irish roads. 

Over one in four of all injury attendances in the accident and emergency departments are alcohol related.

Enough for ya?

As I was saying: We Irish are a nation of piss-heads.

So, guess who Irish Government relies on to convince the nation that we are drinking too much? 

The Drinks Industry.

Screwed up, isn’t it?
