Legislation to combat problem drinking was last night passed by the Dáil.

The bill introduces minimum unit pricing, separating alcohol from other products in shops as well as advertising restrictions and a broadcasting watershed.

Health Minister Simon Harris hailed the "ground-breaking measure".

Danny Healy-Rae noted that it was 'ridiculous' and shameful' to 'break the link between the local business people and the local GAA club'.
