The Government's considering banning the sale of alcohol after a certain time of day.

It's among the measures being looked at to curb on-street drinking.

Tánaiste Leo Varadkar says work is underway on new public health regulations to strengthen the law in this area.

He says the issue is not straight forward when it comes to laws on take-away pints.

"We're certainly going to further enforce the existing ban of people drinking outdoors in public streets.

"We are looking at other measures then around the sale of alcohol - but it's actually not that straight forward."

Mr Varadkar said that any move to ban so-called takeaway pints would also see a ban on takeaway alcohol for food takeaways and off licenses.

He said the Government is examining its options.

"So what we could potentially do is ban the sale of all alcohol after a certain point of time in the day.

"It's that type of thing that we're looking at".
