    Year 2010 for SHOOFLY CHARDONNAY 2008 With over 500 wines typically available in any NOffLA outlet the Gold Star Awards enable consumers to identify some of the very best wines available in Ireland The winning wines were awarded on the basis of appearance smell taste and value for money Each of the 15 award winners is available in NOffLA s 330 independent off licences around the country and will be clearly identifiable on shelf According to NOffLA Chairperson Evelyn Jones the Gold Star Awards play a key role in communicating the variety of excellent wines available in Ireland at different price points The awards are categorised by price so have gained a reputation over the past nine years for being the essential guide for selecting great wines at any price said Ms Jones There is sometimes a misconception that the higher the price the better the quality of wine But four of NOffLA s Gold Star winners retail at under 8 so we are confident that consumers will be able to pick up some superb wines whether they want to spend 7 99 or 19 99 The Gold Star Awards brochure which includes tasting notes will also provide shoppers with

  • Ireland first to provide on-line training and certification for Off-Licence staff
    facility of its type in Europe The National Off Licence Association has been providing specialist training to the proprietors and staff of its 350 member outlets for more than 10 years and now this expertise is being made available for the first time on line and also to all independent alcohol retailers outside the membership of our Association said Ms Jones In view of the widely acknowledged importance of providing special training for personnel with responsibility for selling alcohol products which can have a particular impact on health and society while at the same time observing strict licensing laws this innovation will have far reaching consequences In addition the newly launched Responsible Trading Certificate will be highly beneficial in relation to licence renewal and will prove to be a positive step in enhancing the role of the alcohol retailer in tackling alcohol abuse nationally Heretofore the need to send staff to on site training courses has presented a problem for many independent retailers throughout the country in terms of staff resources and cost Despite this all member outlets of the National Off Licence Association have participated in specialist training This has been undertaken by our members in the past on a voluntary basis because while our Association has been lobbying to have mandatory training introduced to date the Government has not introduced such a requirement in its recently updated licensing legislation Selling alcohol is very different to selling groceries or sweets Staff who sell alcohol not only need to be fully familiar with the law and with the risks to themselves and their employers that can result in business closures and fines but they must also be trained to deal with problematic situations regarding underage purchasing drunkenness and anti social behaviour The new on line professional course deals with societal

  • Cop Out by Minister making us look silly!
    wish to purchase alcohol in a shop after 10 00 pm as alcohol abusers This legislation is regarded by the general public as meaningless and nothing more than window dressing as far as curbing alcohol consumption is concerned The Irish public are not happy so much so that over 30 000 signatures objecting to the early closing have been collected and these petitions are ready to be handed into Dail Eireann The trading hour s restriction has effectively reduced the period during which specialist retailers can sell by 30 hours per week This translates to a reduction of sales of up to 40 As specialist alcohol retailers who have for many years set the standards for responsible alcohol retailing our members should be the very last to be penalised by early closing Mr McCabe went on to warn that alcohol abuse can only be tackled effectively by specialist training for staff who have responsibility for selling alcohol directly to the public The most effective means of tackling such a situation is through responsible trading and in order to achieve that our Association has been highlighting the urgent need for legislation to introduce mandatory training of all staff directly engaged in selling alcohol to the public Such training is already a requirement for all independent specialist off licences within our membership The ongoing practice of superstores and discounters using cut priced alcohol to generate increased traffic to their stores continues to result in consumers purchasing alcohol in large volumes and this inevitably leads to alcohol abuse Furthermore the increased availability of alcohol as a result of relaxed licensing laws extending the range of outlets selling alcohol according to all expert opinion facilitates an increase in underage drinking This is highly irresponsible and serves as yet another example of the need for
