Eyes on Ages: A research on alcohol age limit policies in European Member States. Legislation, enforcement and research
The consumption of alcohol by adolescents is of concern for a number of reasons, like brain damage, alcohol dependence and an increased risk of an alcohol related death. In order to reduce the availability of the toxic substance alcohol, a higher compliance with minimum age limits for alcohol should be achieved. In turn, the higher compliance with the law will contribute to the prevention and reduction of the harm from alcohol use (specifically among adolescents). In this report an overview is given of age limit policies for alcohol in the EU.
The HBSC Ireland Trends Report 1998-2010: Child Health Behaviours, Outcomes and Contexts
The Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) trends report presents findings on indicators of children’s health and well-being between 1998 and 2010. The report is divided into three main sections: health behaviours; health outcomes and contexts of children’s lives. Overall, there was a one per cent decrease between 1998 and 2010 - 29.3% to 28.3% - in the number of children who had ever been drunk.
Alcohol Action Ireland Pre Budget Submission 2014
Alcohol Action Ireland's Pre-Budget Submission 2014 calls for the introduction of minimum pricing. Minimum pricing has the potential to significantly reduce alcohol-related harm in Ireland, resulting in a reduction of the substantial costs incurred by the State and the number of lives lost due to alcohol in Ireland every year. It would effectively target those drinkers choosing the cheapest and strongest alcohol products, who would benefit most from a reduction in their consumption, while having little or no effect on low-risk drinkers. In conjunction with minimum pricing, a very modest "social responsibility" levy on the alcohol industry would make a significant contribution to funding activities and initiatives that would help to reduce the social and health harms caused by its products in Ireland.
