I thought they tried that in the UK and people ended up still leaving around 3-4am, so the crowds were all out on the street at once, just later at night.


3-4? Sure I've been in Coppers many times as late as 4! I mean later like 6am. Was in a place years ago in Belgium until 8.30 place had well emptied by then!

People were free to stay later. Most of the crowd just don't. I'd get bored after an hour in a nightclub anyway

I'd have no sympathy for any pub that charges over 4.40 for a pint.


go to Dublin and pay 6. publicans are greedy hoors.

pubs are losing their relevance. at home I can smoke , choose my own music.get six cans for the price of two pints (that will change, you cannot have people getting cheap booze)and invite in however I want even people wearing trainers.

Its only going to drive up house parties, meaning Gardai are diverted away from the city centre, meaning less Gardai to cover anti-social behaviour outside pubs etc.

Who stands to benefit in this ruling?

The pubs? No
Anyone going out? No
The people depending on these jobs and business from local people and tourists? No

Either, its some ploy to lower anti-social behaviour, which I doubt because if anything it would be to coincide with students going back, or its simple money grabbing after all the festivals are over. Either way, it'll hurt the Galway economy and it's image.

In Dublin in the rare ould times if guard came into a pub where a politician would be drinking after hours he would be asked if he wanted a pint or a posting.
I wonder what Fidelma would say if she was caught in a pub after hours?

Gardai in the suburbs. you cant have that. what would the scumbags do about break ins?

if pubs want customers then they have to start giving them something back. distribute a few cocktail sausages to show appreciation or something.

BTW do you guys thinks its worth forking out ten euro plus to go a late night bar such as the quays. there may be a band on but they make a fortune from the booze. do the super pubs still bring up the price after a certain hour?

And you are right, we were thrown out of Supermacs at 3 last night, cops were in there, and they had come around and said "were closing in ten minutes, sorry".



I find this bit disturbing.

I've no problem with the guards enforcing the law. (I don't love the idea of pubs closing earlier obviously, but bottom line, the law is the law.) But AFAIK there are no laws about when businesses like Supermacs may open, besides their planning permissions - which aren't the guards business to enforce.

I'm quietly trusting that the bosses of Supermacs and the larger pubs are dealing with this problem at the properly levels. Seems to me that policing must be a lot more effective if the guards are working in conjunction with community/business leaders, rather than p***ing them all off.
