In alot of pubs you see people going in and ordering & in another post places you've been in having music, nothing wrong with a bit of background music but I've seen with my own eyes places being told by the Gardai to stop with the live music, if they can't abide by the rules they'll close them, it's pretty straightforward to follow & easier than losing a licence over. Is it right that its happening, nope we all love a bit of music but unfortunately it's the way it is.
You seem to be in multiple pubs that aren't really following any guidelines so on table service. I'd love to know what your definition is of alot of pubs because I've been out most weekends since outdoor opened up and seen none of that, only time your allowed inside anywhere I've been is to go to the toilet and that's it. It's not that hard to sit at a table and wait for your order to be dropped over.
U25s outside and over it inside... get a grip, if someone's vaccinated they're entitled to be inside come next week.
But sure as we've seen on thread before you seem to have a story for everything, dickie knows best appearently
Easy enough to get an app up in the short space of time. To be honest they don't even need to build one from scratch, plenty already available. Sure you can download one in 2 seconds and scan your own digital cert and it'll give you all the info you need
So after having basically no income since xmas after quitting the bar I worked in because the owners were just grabbing money and couldn't have cared less about staff safety I finally met with an owner who has been closed since the first lockdown and is reopening their doors next week, went over all their plans in place to keep people safe and try and enforce these crazy rules and am gonna be back pulling pints and mixing drinks (and making money :D) from next week. I'm dreading the state of my feet 5 hours into that first shift though...
Now I can't drink in the place yet because it is too dangerous for me to be inside a pub without being fully vaccinated (and the only exception is if I'm being a productive cog in the almighty economy) but I should get my 2nd jab next week so just a few more weeks...
Fair play and best of luck
The one you explained is the one that annoys me the most and is so idiotic. Covid is smart enough to know when you're working and when your not. This Government and health officials are really unbelievable with they stuff they come out with. naivety at its best
Baby powder and a spare pair of socks.....
That still leaves the other problem..
Hi guys I’m just wondering have we any indication yet when late night bars can open again? This 11:30pm closing time is a pain.
Personally i think everyone should be allowed in a restaurant/bar if they are vaccinated or not. It's a person's choice if they want to get the vaccine.People should not be put under pressure to get it. It's sad state of affairs when you see these restrictions being brought in. It's the height of discrimination against unvaccinated people
Got my covid cert earlier and only got my vaccine Monday.
Indoor dining for me then when they open.
Getting my 2nd vaccine Friday so hopefully i will be back drinking indoors next week
That was quick. They clearly are not issuing them in jabbing order..
Hoepfully you will esp getting your 2nd dose
so much for all this 'you'll be waiting xx weeks for your cert because your not fully protected'
That argument definitely out the window
Who said that? No one official anyway.
Check a few posts back 'ha long bay' refered to it
He's right, you're still not fully vaccinated, fly to the UK without a PCR tomorrow, message us from the quarantine hotel with how you get on when you fly back.
Nobody ever said you'd be waiting x weeks, they send them out in batches after you get your 2nd dose.
The onus is on you to know you aren't fully protected while most countries wouldn't let you in if travelling until 14 days after dose 2 or dose 1 in J&J case
Have a mate in the airport, at least a dozen people are in a quarantine hotel tonight because they got the pass but didn't wait the incubation period.
So pubs will be turning me away to drink outside scanning my QR code because I won't be protected til 2nd August ?
Maybe, maybe not, maybe it's as simple as the scanner turns red or green, maybe they won't even check. Ask your local, I don't have the pass but I've been assured by several places I drink that the appointment card will be sufficient.
Acceptable I suppose
Offering (Hand shake to put our differences aside and move on) ?
id say most people here are drinking in rural ireland, a few pubs in small towns and villages dont go crazy on the rules.it would only be a few locals coming in.
and those people have to pay for that hotel stay don’t they ? Costly move. I see some places on Twitter are saying they won’t open up indoors until their young staff are vaccinated.
and as other have said PTH the receiving of the cert doesn’t mean you’re fully vaccinated. I’m getting my second dose on Saturday and I’ll probably get the cert at some point next week hopefully but that doesn’t mean I’m good to go.
Yeah, it's not cheap either, think it's 150 a night.
Going by Facebook a few places locally waiting a few weeks to open indoors let staff be fully vaccinated
Well I’ve seem a few places on Twitter and from the replies(yes, I should know better) you’d swear those places had committed an unforgivable sin. If a pub wants to stay closed until their staff are vaccinated then as a private business that’s their call.
Another bar in my town with a handful of comments on facebook about having to wear a star of David to enter the pub from lunatics who expect pubs to break the law :/ FFS
As hypocritical as it might be for me to argue this system is unworkable whilst planning to go back working in it, I really hope I'm wrong and staff can do their job and be treated with some respect. I'll say the same thing I say to every idiot who complains about not being served a drink after closing time, I didn't make the law, I think it is a stupid law but I'm not your TD or planning to run for government so why are you moaning to me?
Pubs be free of conspiracy theorists. Peace.
Fair play to those business owners wanting to make sure their staff are covered. Probably an easier choice for those with enough outdoor space to operate though.
