Padraig Cribben, Chief Executive of the Vintners Federation of Ireland said, "The importance of the Irish pub to the tourism industry in Ireland is there for everyone to see. We have played and continue to play a pivotal role in Irish tourism up and down the country. Recent research shows that over 80% of tourists use the pub for food and/or entertainment and it's the number one attraction."
"Girls drinking didn't exist when I was a student, but now they're drinking dainty little drinks that are very strong and it's a new problem I've observed, young girls, quite drunk" he added
" There are a large number of different medicines for heart disease, depending on your situation. There are different guidelines for these medicines; some are better taken after food or at night. For examples, it is advisable to avoid grapefruit when on heart medications. Different medicines will have different side effects, so ask your pharmacist if you have any side effects or have any questions about the medicines you are taking" Mr Duggan concluded
HE is on the cusp of his 80th birthday, but broadcasting legend Jimmy Magee has vowed that he will never retire. "I'd like to do a lot of things over again. I would go on a final trip around all the places in the world that I loved most of all and do them all again and live there for awhile" he added
