Anti-tobacco campaigners hailed the success of the workplace smoking ban today on its second anniversary.

Professor Luke Clancy, Chairman of ASH Ireland, said the measure has been hugely effective because the Irish people have promoted it.

“Its continued success must be guarded carefully and preserved for the Irish workers,” he said.

“The Irish example has been followed in several countries throughout the world, most recently Scotland.

“We look forward to an all-Ireland smoke-free workplace ban next year and a similar ban to follow in England and Wales.

“Nobody now doubts that an EU-wide ban is possible. What a difference a couple of years can make in such an important health issue. Let’s press on with tobacco control.”
