Smoking ban hitting trade, claim vinters

Tuesday, January 6th, 2004

The Licensed Vintners Association admitted the two-month old smoking ban had been effective but it said business was still down by around 15%.

Chief executive, Donall O`Keeffe, criticised a report hailing the new law a success.
“Figures from the Dublin trade clearly show that on average, pub revenues have been hit by between 12% and 15%,” he said.

“While the impact is not totally uniform across Dublin pubs, make no mistake about it, the smoking ban is having a serious financial impact.”
