Thread Name: DDay for smoking ban in Ireland
Subject: RE: DDay for smoking ban in Ireland
I'll be interested to hear how it works, especially in country areas where I understand the licencing regulations are already, shall we say, elastic... with the local gardai turning a blind eye.
How has it worked in US cities? Do the police resent having to enforce it? Or do civilian inspectors have responsibility? US fiction always implies fire and health inspectors are routinely bought off by businesses...?

(perhaps I read the wrong books...)
