Lots of people think it's a needless ban. I mean, come on... you can still buy a pack of smokes at the corner shop, but you can't buy a beer? I see. So the Irish lawmakers think it's fine to destroy your lungs, but not your liver on certain days of the year. I'm just bummed because I had a crappy day and I wanted to get a beer after work. Then I come to the shop and find this; the beer aisle has curtains over it.
