    Irish Smoking Ban

    Did you guys hear they are banning smoking in all public buildings in Ireland? Including that 1,000,000,000,000 pubs they probably have down there.

    No one cares. They banned smoking in restaurants and bars here in NYC and guess what ... the bars make more money. Think about it. There are more people who do not smoke than smokers. Most non smokers hate going to bars because of the smoke.

    I think smoking should be banned from all public places including out doors. Let them do that $hit in their homes or on their own property.

However, I smoke when I drink...but i have no problem going outside and doing it....I don't want to ruin anyone's night with my vice's....shiat, they even banned smoking on the beach where I live includeing the other three next to it....and now Santa Monica wants to do it as well..... it's nice though.....

    Well this is the first weekend where the ban is in force, I'm off to work very shortly so I'll let you know how it goes. I'm being brought in 2 hours early tonight because there's been trouble already today!.
    I suspect getting Irish people to respect this law is going to be awhile lot different than Americans. We have a much stronger pub culture here, plus we ain't called 'The fighting Irish' for nothing.

    Should be fun!.

    Well first night worked under the ban. There was some bitching but no trouble, I've no smell of smoke from my clothes and I'm not coughing up sh*t this morning. But the down side, there was absolutely no athmospher in the pub tonight, some people likened it to an American bar. Dull and boring, but the American tourists loved it!. We have a beer garden out the back for the summer, most people brought their drinks out there where their allowed to smoke and drank out in the rain and cold.

    Time will tell if its a good thing, oh and I was pestered with drunks on the front door talking bullsh*t to me all night.

    Not true. From what I've read, the bars and restaurants are making more money with the smoking ban.

    Smokers are the scourge of the earth. Had the same probs when they first banned that crap here also. People just don't like being told that they can't do something......especially if they think they have a right to do it. Hope this little legal fiasco works out ok for you.

She said she would be nice to me and wouldnt tell him

    I don't smoke and can't stand the scent, but I believe that the business should have the final say as to whether or not it wants to be smoking or non-smoking.....not some government policy. Personally, I don't go to restaurants that allow smoking (sorry Waffle House). If nonsmokers would boycott businesses that allowed smoking, a decrease in business would force them to change their smoking policy. Just a thought.

    I work in Nightclubs in Belfast and ****ing hate smoking. I go home every night smelling like sh*t and with a huge lump in my throat that I can never get rid of or swallow. I have know idea what it is. And the amount of mucus created by my throat is quadrupled. I just wish they would bring that law into the north. Can't wait until it happens.
    Until then I'm contemplating moving to Dublin for a while. LOL. Wish I could.

    I also think parents who smoke in there houses should be brought up for child abuse. If they want to smoke in ther houses then don't have kids, if you do then do it outside. Think of the damage your doing to your children. It really pisses me of when smokers think they are the only ones with rights. Don't forget smokers are the ones who are commiting the actions and disturbing the peace. If you want to do something you have to get permmision of the people around you incase you are disturbing them. They have rights also. Would it be acceptable to have sex in the middle of the street?

    Sorry about that, I just needed to get that of my chest. I just really hate this "smoker's rights" crap.

    Ah, this old thread...

    Well here's the up to date situ here, 2 months on. The bars are losing money hand over fist, before the smoking ban I worked 23 hours over the weekend, I'm now down to 14 hrs and there's talk of reducing that further. The owner also had to let one barman go and put another on part time work. I work in Dublin city centre, Sean you've probably heard of TempleBar, its where I work. I'd say 80% of our business is tourist. Like I said earlier, the Americans love it because you don't have the same pub culture the Brits and Irish do. But (and this is not mean't in a disrectfull way) you wouldn't want to live on what American tourists spend!, its only a rumour their as tight as a camels ass in a sand storm. Also recently 4 pubs and clubs have closed because of lack of business, IN IRELAND!!. I've NEVER heard of a pub closing in Ireland!.

    What else!.. Mmmm, the pavements are filthy with cigarette ends and its disgusting to see a hundred people outside on the pavement smoking. One barman has been stabbed when he asked a customer to leave the bar with his smoke, Sean it was in the media here you might have heard. Overall its been a disaster, our business is down maybe 40%. But the public face the Government put on it it looks all rosey!. I'll be lucky to be working in my present bar this time next year.
