Uncorked

Ireland’s drinking... Uncorked. This December on Newstalk.

This December, Newstalk’s ‘Uncorked’ series will take a closer look at our relationship with alcohol.

We’ll be lifting the lid on our attitudes toward drink; asking ‘how much is too much?', and tracking our drinking habits.

100 listeners completed our Uncorked survey. Take a look at the results here.
