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.

It’s difficult living in England; the climate is unbearable, the food is frightful, and the politicians are dreadful. So it’s no surprise Britons are choosing Russian roulette during the Wuhan Virus lockdown.

LOCKDOWN has turned into a booze-up for Juel Stokes, who’s been sipping fizz for breakfast, downing beer in the afternoon and dozing off with a brandy at night.

The 51-year-old music exec freely admits her drinking has surged during the coronavirus crisis, and she’s not the only one.

This can be a net positive for me, because the more women drink, the better I look.

This week, research by Opinium for Direct Line Life Insurance found that more Brits are drinking more during lockdown.

An estimated 250,000, including Juel, have their first sip before midday, with the average drinker having 12.6 more daytime units a week and 14.6 in the evening. Twelve units equates to about six pints of low-strength beer.

Wow, if this keeps up, British livers will look as ghastly as their teeth.
