The Kilkenny People reported 40 years ago this week on October 21, 1977 that "Sweets and lollies are tooth bombs".

It was a timely reminder for Halloween as a former president of the Irish Dental Association, Mr Gerry Pierse, called for more information on the packaging of sweets and more education for both children and parents of the danger to dental hygiene.
