Each year LAN organises a number of educational and awareness raising events to mark the occasion.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up However, due to Covid-19 and restrictions put in place, this year LAN will move their efforts to social media using #16DaysLimerick to raise awareness around its work and to educate the public on how to support a loved one who may be living with domestic violence.Each day, over the 16 Days, LAN member groups, from across a range of statutory and voluntary organisations, will release information on the workings of LAN, educational resources and national supports available to women experiencing domestic violence via their social media platforms using #16DaysLimerick. LAN are asking members of the public to help share this information on social media to ensure it has as wide a reach as possible.LAN hope that by circulating this information online not only will it educate the general public around how to support a loved one they fear might be in a violent situation, but cruitally, they want to let the women of Limerick know that there are numerous local and national supports available to them if they are living with domestic violence.LAN Chairperson and Executive Director of Rape Crisis Midwest, said, “While we are disappointed we cannot meet in person this year to mark the 16 Days of Action, we are delighted that we can carryout this important awareness raising campaign online and we would encourage the public to engage with the #16DaysLimerick posts on social media as they may end up being a lifeline for someone they know and love.” Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash Roisin Upton excited by “hockey talent coming through” in Limericklast_img read more

BLOG: Want Wine? Ship it to Your House Under New Liquor Reform Bill.

first_img Liquor Reform,  The Blog There’s been a lot of talk about wine in grocery stores and beer at gas stations since Governor Wolf signed the most significant liquor reform bill since Prohibition.These are huge reforms and wins for consumers and will make purchasing wine and beer much more convenient for Pennsylvanians. But what you may not know is that the law also provides for any Pennsylvania resident to ship wine from anywhere in the world to their home.This puts the consumer first and breaks down barriers to getting wine from a variety of new sources. Consumers can direct ship up to 36 cases containing at most 9 liters of wine each per calendar year.Here’s how the Philadelphia Inquirer recently reported the change:“For the state’s most devoted wine lovers, a much bigger deal is the adoption of direct-to-consumer shipping from winemakers nationwide – putting Pennsylvania in line with 43 other states that give residents access to wine clubs from obscure West Coast wineries.”Jeremy Benson, executive director of Free the Grapes!, a California group that has been advocating for direct shipping nationally since 1998, welcomed the shift in Pennsylvania.“It’s a populous state. It is a state with a lot of wine lovers in it, and it is the last of the large states that has continued to effectively bar winery direct shipping,” he said. “For all those reasons, it is a very, very important win for consumers.””It’s true: this is a big win for consumers, especially wine lovers.But, wait! There are even more changes that benefit consumers and Pennsylvania businesses outside grocery stores. Here’s a few other changes you should like:Pennsylvania Wine and Spirits stores can now offer coupons and customer loyalty programs, including buy-one-get-one and seasonal promotions;Bars and breweries can now operate a “mug club” which could mean big discounts on beer for members;Pennsylvania-based breweries, wineries and distilleries can sell each other’s products for consumption; andBreweries, wineries and distilleries can now more easily offer tastings and sell products at farmers markets and other food and beverage fairs.
