    Instead of "preserving the pub culture" how about starting a "taxi culture."

    Basically they are saying that in rural areas the very strict drink driving laws are ruining pub business. In my opinion drink driving laws can't be strict enough. What you need is to organize better coaches and taxis home. Irish drinking culture is so much in the mind set, they can't think outside the box.

    When i was in high school (grad - 1979), we had those in Florida and some were package stores attached to bars. It was so bad that you could actually drive through the drive-thru and buy a drink and get it in a cup with a lid on it. I had a friend that used to do it frequently(you only had to be 18 then).
