Invitation to Drinkaware Autumn 2020 Research Briefing
Drinking behaviours and attitudes in Ireland in the context of COVID-19

Date: Wednesday 23rd September 2020 
Time: 11am – 12 noon
This event will take place online via Zoom 

Join us for our Autumn 2020 Research Briefing, featuring John O’Mahony, Director, B&A, delivering the keynote presentation.

Talk title: Drinking behaviours and attitudes in Ireland in the context of COVID-19.
This presentation will provide a comprehensive overview of our Barometer survey that was conducted by Behaviour & Attitudes during April and May 2020. This research was undertaken in order to provide an overview of adults’ drinking behaviours in Ireland during Lockdown and to monitor attitudinal measures in relation to related issues by examining in-depth drinking behaviours and attitudes of Irish adults in the context of COVID-19. The extensive findings gathered give an indication of the behaviour change regarding drinking habits that may be starting to form as a result of the pandemic, and changes to the way Irish adults drink that are happening.

Speaker Biography:
After graduating from Trinity College, Dublin with a degree in Business Studies, John O’Mahony gained experience in financial services before joining brand consultancy Alexander Dunlop where he managed and consulted on international research projects in the UK, Germany, India and USA.

Since joining B&A in 2004, John designs and manages both qualitative and quantitative research for clients. The ability to deliver a dualist research approach and perspective is a feature he finds particularly rewarding. He specialises in complex quantitative research with large samples and the application of a range of statistical analysis techniques. In addition to his technical skills as a researcher, he is an experienced project manager.

John’s research for B&A has been nominated for a series of research awards for his work with the Road Safety Authority, RTE Performing Groups and Tourism Ireland. The blending of economic analysis and market research has been a feature of John’s work, including projects with Fáilte Ireland on the economic contribution of Festivals; with Dublin City Council on the socio-economic impact of Croke Park on the local community; and the contribution of the horse racing industry to the Irish economy.
