People who find themselves the victims of drunken behaviour are being featured in new advertising that aims to brand binge-drinking in Ireland as socially unacceptable.
A young women harassed by drunken yobs, a nurse having to deal with drunken behaviour in a hospital casualty department and a taxi driver watching a drunk throw up in the back of his cab are among those appearing in the TV spot. Each scene ends with the victim declaring: "I've had enough."
The campaign is being funded by Mature Enjoyment of Alcohol in Society, a group that promotes responsible drinking and whose members include Diageo, InBev, Heineken and Irish Distillers.
Language Communications, the Dublin agency that produced the film, said it was intended to remove the "social permission" for drunken behaviour.

Charal, the French meat producer, takes its cue from the current craze for Transformers in new TV advertising to promote its fresh and frozen cheeseburger range.
The two 30-second spots, devised by Leo Burnett in Paris, are a spoof on the Michael Bay movie, which was released in France during the summer.
The premise for the commercials is that everyday kitchen appliances, including cookers, microwaves and washing machines, will turn themselves into robots to get their hands on Charal products because they are so tasty.
Charal claims to be the first French meat producer to have adopted a brand strategy, and prides itself on what it says is its mixture of strong communication, product quality and innovation. It is best known for its slogan: "Charal, the meat has a name."

Camper, the Spanish shoe manufacturer, has launched its first global campaign with advertising that uses the brand's distinctive shoebox to express its character.
Madre in Buenos Aires has created the print initiative, which introduces Camper's autumn and winter collection under the theme "Imagination walks".
It focuses on the fact that every Camper box contains a surprise. Gabriela Bayala, the Madre creative director, said: "We thought the box was a way of opening the door to Camper and expressing the creative power of the brand. Camper has soul and an ethos that is uncommon in most of the brands and companies out there."
Camper is a family business that has been making shoes since 1877. The Camper range, which aims to combine style and comfort, first appeared in 1975.
