Alcohol prices

Rising alcohol prices could see customers crossing the border

Dundalk PRO Paddy Malone Chamber of Commerce has expressed concern that the new minimum price for alcohol introduced last Tuesday could lead buyers across the border.

The new regulations mean that an average bottle of wine can now not be sold for less than 7.40 €, a can of beer must cost at least 1.70 € and the prices of spirits have also increased, bottles of vodka or of gin costing at least € 20.70 and whiskey at least € 22.
