Kerry publicans to implement smoking ban.

Publicans in the county have overturned a decision not to implement the smoking ban in five days time. The Kerry branch of the Vintner`s Federation has said they will implement the ban. However at a meeting of the federation it was agreed to revisit the issue in six months time. Chairman John O Sullivan says they are entering unchartered waters and hope the Minister for Health will introduce a hardship fund in the future.
