Good Friday Alcohol Ban Set To Be Lifted

The Good Friday ban on alcohol sales looks set to be lifted – but not until next year.

It’s reported the Justice Minister will not oppose a bill put forward by a group of Independent Senators, that proposes an end to the 90 year old restriction.

The Irish Times reports that the lifting of the ban could be incorporated into the Government’s Sale of Alcohol Bill – which is due before the Dáil later this year.
