Irish Clubs to Hand Out Free Lollipops to Prevent Rowdiness

By Robert Paul Reyes

"An Irish council is giving lollipops to people leaving nightclubs in a bid to ensure drinkers stay quiet, behave themselves and get home safely.


Mayo County Council`s road safety officer said he hoped the complimentary confectionary would act as "gobstoppers" for late night revellers.

He said the lollies had a dual purpose as the wrappers are printed with the message: Get home safely.

The scheme is being supported by the police and local nightclub owners, and the lollies will be distributed by nightclub security staff at closing time over the Christmas period."


Handing out lollipops to people leaving nightclubs and bars is an effective way to stop drunken brawls and loud arguments from breaking out in the streets. If wankers are sucking on lollipops it will hinder them from flirting, mouthing off and engaging in other verbal behavior that leads to physical altercations.

Mothers give toddlers lollipops to shut them up; people who cause fights in nightclubs are overgrown children, why shouldn`t nightclub owners treat them accordingly?

Handing out lollipops to party people will deliver a sucker punch to mayhem breaking out in the streets.
