Concern New Guidelines Will Create Divide Between Pubs And Other Licenced Premises

A Clare publican has expressed concern that new guidlelines for the industry will create a divide between traditional pubs and other licenced premises.

Nightclubs will welcome back customers tonight for the first time since March 2020 at 100 per cent capacity.

While pubs and restaurants can stay open past half eleven and customers can get a drink at the bar but they must be socially distanced and must return to their tables.


Operations Manager at Durty Nelly’s in Bunratty, Maurice Walshe believes the rules will lead to confusion for both businesses and customers.
