Erin Go Raw

A new shocking survey claims Irish parents are drinking more alcohol than usual during the Chinese Wuhan Virus lockdown. Is it possible to drink more than usual in the inebriation capital of the world?

ONE fifth of Irish households with pre-school aged children binge drink on a weekly basis, a new survey has found. Drinkaware revealed that the main cause of this binge drinking was due to stress or tension at home during lockdown.

Plus the fact that they’re Irish. I mean, this columnist has actually met an Irish person, right?

Drinkaware reported high levels of tension and stress contributed to an increase in alcohol consumption in Irish households during lockdown, in particular, those with young children.

Irish! Most of them drink slightly less often than Russians; and those Russians start drinking at 5am.

I mean, I guess it’s better they drink themselves to vomitous extremes than say, making babies in the kiddie pool at noon in front of the neighbors.

  1. What’s the definition of “binge drink?”
    Anti-drinking folks change definitions to suit their point.
    Having 3 beers could be binge-drinking.
    That could be ‘breakfast’ in normal times.

  2. Veeshir – When i played ice hockey for twenty -plus years, our sponsor was a bar. Went there after every game – obviously – and I started having a problem with alcohol. Sadly, that problem is hereditary, and it got so bad I had to stop playing.

    Now I drink one bottle of beer and I’m hammered.
