Bad for the smokers of UL. 

Smoking and vaping will no longer be permitted on the campus of the University of Limerick from this Friday, June 1, the Limerick Leader reports. 

No smoking zones were introduced last September and now an all-out ban on cigarettes,  electronic cigarettes, electronic cigars and electronic pipes will be put in places in all areas. 

Speaking about the move, UL President Professor Desmond Fitzgerald said:

"This is a major step towards a healthier campus. I hope it will help those who want to quit smoking and also help prevent incoming students from taking up the habit.

"As a former smoker, I know how addictive nicotine is and how tough it is to stop smoking. I’m sure current smokers will struggle with this, but I also know that they do not want to see others start and that their sacrifice will save lives."
