VIDEO: Government confirms roll out of smoky coal ban by Autumn 2018

The ban on the sale of smoky coal, which has been in place in Ireland’s major cities for a number of years, will be extended nationwide from Autumn 2018, it has been confirmed.
Denis Naughten, Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment, confirmed that coal distributors will be allowed 12 months to sell off existing stocks before a total ban comes into effect in 2019.
A ban on the sale of smoky coal was first introduced in Dublin in 1990 to improve air quality and research has shown this move resulted in 350 fewer deaths per year throughout the city.
