A Focus on Alcohol and Health in Cork and Kerry – A Report of the Director of Public Health 2019

“In recent times, the public discourse around alcohol centred around the Public Health (Alcohol) Bill , now an Act. I am privileged and proud to work in an environment where our political, clinical and public health leaders spoke with one voice to protect the health of our population through legislative reform. It is now time to do more collectively within our respective regions and I envisage this report to be a vehicle to generate further conversations to enable our population to lead healthier, happier and more fulfilling lives without the harms caused by misuse of alcohol.” - Dr Augustine Pereira, Director of Public Health (Cork & Kerry)
