Smoking Ban in Ireland Airport and Railway

Ireland: Since March 2004 the Irish Government has implemented a ban on smoking
in the workplace in Ireland. This means that with effect from that smoking is forbidden
in enclosed places of work in Ireland. This includes office blocks, various buildings,
public houses/bars, restaurants and company vehicles (cars and vans). The Government 
has further strengthened the law on smoking by limiting the sale of cigarettes in Ireland.

Less than one-fourth the Irish population smoke. The purpose of this ban is to offer
protection to employees and the public who are exposed to the harmful and toxic effects
of tobacco smoke in the workplace. Smoking has been identified as a major cause of
heart disease and a significant contributor to lung cancer in Ireland.

Any person found guilty of breaching the ban on smoking in the workplace may be
subject to a fine of up to 3,000 Euros. The owner, manager or person in command of the
workplace is legally responsible for ensuring that the ban on smoking in the workplace
is complied with.
