Alcohol legislation changes

Public Health (Alcohol) Act 2018

The new Alcohol Public Health Regulations regarding the sale and supply of alcohol will come into force from 11th January 2021. This is a government regulated initiative and Centra will be adhering to these regulations accordingly.

This legislation is part of a range of measures planned under the Healthy Ireland framework, which will work together to improve our health and wellbeing, both as individuals and as a nation. Its goal is to reduce our per capita alcohol consumption in Ireland from 11 litres to 9.1 litres for every person aged 18 and over, and to reduce alcohol harm.
