Minister for Education Norma Foley (top left) is confronted by a group of publicans from Kerry, wearing their county jerseys, who are protesting against the continued closure of Irish pubs during lockdown.

This morning, NPHET”s guidelines for so-called ‘wet pubs’ to follow were revealed:

This includes a ban on any live music or dancing. Public health experts also recommended that TV volume must be turned down low to ensure people are not forced to speak over it.

Nphet also said some pubs may need to introduce extra toilets facilities to allow for social distancing.
