    Smirting & The Smoking Ban

    by orlikins Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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)

    There is a small gaelic-speaking community in Ring, County Waterford, which is between Ardmore and Dungarvan. In the summer, locals run Irish language courses for schoolkids.
