Taoiseach Micheál Martin, Tánaiste Leo Varadkar in government buildings last night
Further to Taoiseach Micheal Martin’s call that ‘No publican should be selling takeaway pints…’
The Tánaiste Leo Varadkar has said the Government is considering banning the sale of alcohol after a certain time of day.
Mr Varadkar told Pat Kenny the issue of on-street drinking will be doubled down on as part of these new restrictions.
“We’re working on new public health regulations that strengthen the law in this regard around drinking alcohol in public streets, and that will give the Gardaí more powers of enforcement”.
Rumours abound that there is going to be a ban on take away pints. The little things get us through the pandemic, I enjoy a casual can by the canal at six feet with a friend one on one the odd Friday.
We reduce contacts, cannot have people over to the house, stay within 5km and work hard. That little thing of two or three cans by the canal is an outlet for human contact. All of us make sacrifices but can we not have the little things that keep us sane in these difficult times?
