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?
Screwed up, isn’t it?
