Action on Smoking and Health (ASH)

jessievenegas Jessie Venegas — 2/04/2008

On March 29 2004, Ireland became the first country in the world to completely ban smoking in all workplaces. The idea was initially met with much skepticism, as the Irish traditionally had a worldwide image as a land of drinkers and smokers. However, the ban has been a huge success. Cigarettes sales have fallen by as much as 60% in Pubs. A survey by the Irish Department of Health showed 82% supported the ban. Anti-smoking lobby groups such as ASH had been calling for a ban for many years prior to the Governments initiative.
