It looks like Roisin Shortall has had her way in increasing the cost of "low price" beer. To save us from ourselves, you see. And simultaneously raising yet more taxes, of course.
The (badly taken) pics you see were captured at Tescos Maynooth. They boast of 300 ml Grolsch 12-packs on offer for the princely sum of €15. Or, if you read the small print which you can't really see due to my challenged snapper skills, €43.44 per litre.
OK, Tesco's mistake - but it could be an awful portent of things to come given our government's penchant for taxation, and Shortall's stated desire to increase it on booze in particular.
If it comes to that, we may as well plump for Sweden as an emigration choice in the years ahead.
