Smokers are responsible for almost half of all litter on Irish streets, according to the latest annual report from the Government's litter-monitoring body.
The body said cigarette-related rubbish accounted for just over 48% of all litter last year, with the smoking ban leading to a significant increase in discarded butts outside bars and restaurants.
