Both males (66%) and females (66%) appear to be of equal agreement here. Breaking the figures down by age, those aged over 55 are more likely to believe that structural separation of alcohol products is a positive move, compared to the other age groups; 18-24 (62%), 25-34 (57%), 35-44 (67%) and 45-54 (67%).
While a large volume of Irish adults think structural separation in stores is a good thing, almost half (46%) think it will not have an impact on alcohol consumption.
