I was unaware that the legal drinking age in Ireland was lowered from 21 to 18 on July 1st.
I was not surprised to learn that the age of consent in Ireland has been lowered from 18 to 18.
The legal drinking of alcohol in Ireland is legal under certain circumstances, including at certain locations such as nightclubs, bars and pubs, but that does not mean it is always permitted.
The law is still unclear and there are no official figures.
I do not know the precise number of people in Ireland who have been charged with drinking under the legal limit, or how many people have been convicted.
But I can tell you that it has been a difficult week for the legalisation of the legal drink.
The Irish Government has made no public statement on the issue of legal drinking in Ireland.
It has not announced that it will make changes to the laws relating to the legal age of drinking.
What happened with the ‘I am underage’ law?
The law was introduced by the Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, on July 6th and is now in place for people aged 18 and over.
Under the legislation, a person is not allowed to consume alcohol if they are underage.
However, people who are underage can be prosecuted for violating the law.
In the case of a case of underage drinking, the person who is charged is not permitted to drink or be in possession of alcohol.
However they can be held in custody for up to two hours while their case is heard.
The person is also not allowed under the law to drink with other people under 18.
This includes people who live together and share alcohol with each other, or who are in a shared home.
This could mean they have to share alcohol in common.
In any event, under the new legislation, people are not allowed anywhere near a drink unless it is a licensed drink, such as a beer or wine.
It is also illegal for people to have more than one drink in a week.
What are the consequences of drinking alcohol under the age?
In theory, drinking alcohol can be seen as a way to improve your mental health, improve your social skills, reduce stress and boost your confidence.
However it is also associated with serious consequences, such the possible misuse of drugs, alcohol and/or other substances.
If someone is charged with a breach of the law, the penalty for a conviction is an imprisonment of up to seven years.
If the person is found guilty of a further offence, the penalties for a second conviction can be up to 15 years in prison.
If convicted for a third or subsequent offence, they could be subject to an unlimited fine and/ or have their licence suspended.
This would be in addition to any fines or costs imposed under the ‘Irish Consulate’ law.
How is the law being changed?
There are a number of provisions in the new law which could be changing in the coming weeks and months.
These include the introduction of new offences of being drunk in public, such it is being reported that someone had been charged under the same section as the one in place today.
There is also a proposal to amend the legislation to remove the requirement for proof of age.
There has also been an effort to introduce changes to address the issue that people can be charged with having a drink on the premises of another person and that this person has been drinking under 21.
In this case, the prosecution would have to prove that the person was drinking at a bar or pub or a venue where alcohol is sold.
The government is also planning to amend Section 9 of the new act, which makes it unlawful for anyone to engage in conduct which constitutes an offence against section 5 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1981, as amended.
This provision would require any person found guilty to pay a penalty of up a maximum of €3,000 to the State and up to €5,000 for a fine of up an maximum of 25% of the person’s total earnings.
A similar provision exists in the Criminal Procedure Act.
The Government has also proposed changes to Section 18 of the legislation which would allow a person to be prosecuted under the laws in place to date, if they have been previously convicted under section 7 of the act, such that it is unlawful for them to engage a third person in sexual activity.
This new legislation will be brought into effect from June 30th.
What do you think about the new legal drinking rules?
I believe it is very important that the Irish Government moves swiftly to address this issue, particularly as the Government has been criticised for failing to do so.
I hope the Government will continue to listen to all stakeholders and take swift action to protect young people and their health.
This is an important issue that is not being addressed, and I hope that we can all work together to find solutions that address it.
The new law is only one of many changes that will be made by the Government in the future.
This has already been brought in with some major changes to some key legislation.
There are also other proposed changes,
