    Smirting & The Smoking Ban

    by orlikins Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Smirting is a combination of the words smoking + flirting, geddit? It started when people had to go out for a ciggie after the ban was enforced, and got chatting to fellow smokers outside on the street, eyes meeting across a cloud of blue nicotine... ;) So you may just meet a local hottie in this way!!

    REMEMBER - Since March 2004, you CANNOT smoke inside bars, cafes or restaurants, or anywhere where people are working (e.g. taxis, offices etc.)
    The legislation is officially known as the Public Health (Tobacco) Act, see link to it below for a summary.

    You may smoke in outside in the street or in designated smoking areas, but never inside a place where people are working (includes offices, bars, restaurants, shops, shopping centres, taxis, etc)

    You will see these everywhere around the roads. We spotted quite a lot as we drove round the coastal roads of the Dingle Peninsula and the Ring of Kerry.

    I have included a picture of another one in my travelogue....

    I have to plead ignorance as to the reason for them being located in such positions so if anyone does know I would be very grateful to hear....
