That's a shame. I think there would be a market in the tourist areas if local food and drink were promoted as part of the attractions of the area. Local pubs could also make more of an effort to promote the beers.
From visits to pubs in Germany and France, the local beers (from <30km away) were always popular, even in the UK local beers seem to be more popular in the pubs than here.

It's different in England .. pubs can brew their own beer
Here, killarney brewing have 3 or 4 taps in town...and not a huge seller anywhere.
I'm lucky in so far as my local off license is a huge supporter of Irish breweries & there always a wonderful choice.... otherwise I'd be in trouble

Muppets standing in doorways.

I saw a woman standing in the doorway of the shop last Friday, facing inwards, using her phone, oblivious to the world around her and the lady on the street that wanted to get in. It'd piss me off in normal times, but in these days of social distancing, why would anybody with half a brain stand in the doorway? The shop was empty too - she could have stood almost anywhere and not been in the way, except for there!

When staff finally got her attention by asking the lady outside if she wanted to go in, it was less than two minutes before she was standing in the doorway again! She didn't look like a natural blonde, but......

Want to avoid the Lockdown?
Don't like the annoying restrictions?

Come to Salthill. Where the rules don't apply nor are enforced.
Even queue for a coffee whilst you flaunt your civic duties.
Salthill, Galway - where viruses don't catch.

Apologies if I'm wrong, popcorn.

To enforce there must be a deterrent, I wonder if ‘small’ numbers of the Army cannot be used to augment the Gardai in certain areas where the Gardai are a bit thinner on the ground. Maybe it’s to keep the Army as a sterile last line of defense perhaps ? If army personnel, say a few hundred were given to the Gardai for say a three month secondment ?

I’m reading that there are about 7,300 full time army personnel and 1600 active reservists... just under 9,000 in total. A couple of hundred in each province could take the pressure off the Gardai, and indeed the pressure ON the fûckwits hanging around in groups and disregarding the regs.

I can feel that I have something in my eye but I can’t see it, nor can I seem to get it out
