    No mention of men not drinking when the woman is pregnant so passive drinking not an issue, yet.
    Irish spirits are about 40% larger than UK ones which means only 10 or so shots a week rather than 14

    Covered on the RTE news last Friday night. Almost put me off my second glass of Kiwi pinot noir, but then Dave Kearney scored his second, so I knocked it back on the basis that I'd never see Dave score 2 again!

      A most logical conclusion.

        Our guidelines are different though. Our units are larger than the UK units. I had a bottle of beer last week which had a sticker on the back saying it was 1.6 UK units or 1.3 Irish units. So our 14 units gets us more beer.

          Bit irresponsible equating men and womens drinking tolerences!

          Im all for equality between the sexes but these kind of health warnings and recommendations should stick with science facts!
