Ban on light bulbs

Yet again, Ireland is the forerunner, this time a ban on lightbulbs, which is great. Households should be using the energy saving lights anyway. With our success in banning plastic bags, and country-wide ban on smoking as well, I am glad that Ireland is taking some steps to make it a better environment to live in.

New legislation is being introduced banning the sale of the normal incandescent lightbulb from January, 2009.
