Section 22 of the Public Health (Alcohol) Act 2018 will soon come into force across the Republic of Ireland.

From November 12th, alcohol products and advertisements must be separated from other products in mixed trade stores, including convenience stores and petrol stations.

The move comes amid rising concerns regarding underage theft and consumption of alcohol products and “seeks to address the negative impacts of consumption on public health grounds”.
