Club Kerry programme introduced in Kerry

It’s hoped a programme which has helped reduce public order offences in Cork can be introduced in the county. The initiative, called Club Kerry teaches pub and nightclub staff how to respond to difficult situations involving drink and drug abuse and how they can best help emergency services. Willie Collins, Co-Ordinator of alcohol and substance misuse services for the health service executive, says a similar programme has worked successfully in Cork. However, he says there’s still a question mark over funding.
