Pioneers For Patrick

RTÉ radio presenter  John Creedon is hoping to pave the way along a straight line by calling on listeners to join him in abstaining from alcohol on St Patrick's Day.

He tweeted 'If you are dreading our national holiday, fight back. Join me in an alcohol-free St.Patrick’s Day.'




Outlining his perspective he said:

Up to recent years people were introduced to pub culture in a subtle way — you were served draft beer in a pub setting, that you could get away with a couple of pints in an adult environment and under the beady eye of the bar owner. In the last 20 years in particular, the introduction to alcohol has been totally different.
