Abstract

Alcohol branded Easter Eggs were observed in a mainstream Irish supermarket. The Public Health (Alcohol) Act, 2018 fails to deal with such child-friendly marketing. An amendment to the current legislation to counter this deficit is urgently required. The absence of such legislation is particularly notable given the longstanding inclusion of clauses to this effect in tobacco control legislation in Ireland.

Conflict of interests: None declared.
