I know that you have to be 18 to buy from a pub, but my mate just said that if you are over 16 you can buy packs from places like tesco legally?

Is this correct, what are the proper laws?

No, you have to be 18 to buy alcohol anywhere.

this is true.

Although many check out staff are lazy and won't bother to ask.

In fact, one time I bought some booze from an ASDA, they asked me for ID, I didn't have any, and they still sold me it, no arguement or anything. I was 20 at the time anyway.

16 and over may purchase beer, porter, cider, or perry with a meal in an eating area on licensed premises (In Scotland wine also)

Yep, I think you'd get some odd looks buying a 4 pack with a microwave ready meal.

Wrong. The 16 year old may consume, but an adult has to buy it.

Thank you, Deliriumbassist. I'm going to be 17 when I go to Ireland next summer, and I'll be going with my 18 year old cousin

I thought I'd have to sit in the pubs and watch him get wasted.

no thats illegal. you have o be 18 to buy any alcoholic drink. just some people look older than they are and can get away with it. most small pubs will serve kids who are 1 or 2 years under 18 as it helps them with business.

you cant watch porn till your 18, but you can have sex when your 16

this means you can film yourself having sex, but your not aloud to watch it back till your 18.

When you're 16 you can order wine/beer at a restaurant as long as there's an adult with you.

I think you can only have the one with the meal. The law might be slightly different in Ireland.

Yeah,. looks like Ireland is a flat 18.

They serve alcohol for consumption on the premeses?

strange. I know supermarkets like to have their cafes and stuff now, but in-supermarket pubs? It's so crazy it may just work!
