The Saint Patrick's Day ban was lifted by subsequent legislation but the ban has remained for Christmas Day and Good Friday.
Presently, there moves afoot to repeal the Good Friday ban.
However, I saw this article, in which a Cork City Councillor has called for the reintroduction of the Saint Patrick's Day ban on alcohol sales:
|I want to ask that before Fine Gael Justice Minister undoes the fine work of her colleague 90 years ago by declaring Good Friday a wet day that she would consider re-declaring St Patrick's Day a dry day once more.|
|My concern is with what happens on St Patrick's Day once the parade is over and everybody goes home.|
I presume that the Cork County Councillor is trying to draw attention to himself in some way, by adopting this unusual approach but who knows, perhaps he is serious?
Any other opinions?
