Smoking Ban Lifted

The smoking ban in Ireland was lifted just a couple of minutes ago officially by Irish Taoiseach Bertie Ahern after Patsy Watchorn had visited the Prime Minister around noon. Mr. Watchorn brought with him several experts from the field of medicine as well tourism and economy. A handful of renowned physicians proved without a doubt that non-smoking could be dangerous to the famous timbre of Mr. Watchorn's voice and too much smokeless air may turn out harmful for Ireland's most cherished vocal chords (consequently, Mr. Watchorn is allowed a maximum of 4 weeks each year to stay outside of Ireland). Since attending a live performance by Patsy is the main reason for ten-thousands of people to visit Ireland, new economy analysts submitted tourism projections that any harm to Patsy's voice may cost the Irish tourism industry approximately 1.75 million daily. The scientific proven documents changed the official mind about the smoking ban and it was lifted immediately.
