The Vintners' Federation of Ireland have strongly criticised the Government for "abandoning rural communities."

Their comments come following changes to the drink-driving legislation, introduced last October.

They say there hasn't been thought put into providing alternative transport solutions for rural communities.

The organisation are holding their AGM in Cork later today.

Chief Executive of the VFI Padraig Cribben says in the absence of meaningful transport solutions, they'd like to see the introduction of a limited licence for people convicted of drink driving.
