Thread Name: DDay for smoking ban in Ireland
Subject: RE: DDay for smoking ban in Ireland
"Non smoking & Smoking areas in pubs " Smoke travels. That is what makes it different from any other method of taking in nocotine - snuff, patches, capsules, even chewing tobacco with a spittoon, though I rather hope that doesn't make a come back.

And the basis from the ban is that a smokers area in the pub will mean the bar staff having to put up with it whether they want or not.

I have no doubt that a whole culture of smokers shanties adjacent to the pub, with no pub workers allowed in, will develop. God knows what they'll get up to in there...
