Pubs staying open

Anyone heard the news report of some pubs staying open apparently the Garda are waiting for the extra powers under the new legislation to make them close.

Was there an order made that pubs must close? I thought the only rule was less than 100 people indoors and then pubs decided to close themselves. I didn't think the government actually ordered the closure of pubs

I can’t say what I want in fear of being banned, but I hope they stay open - if ever a town deserves and needs to keep the pubs open it’s Rathkeale.

They haven’t ordered anything other than for schools to close.

They have said outside gatherings of >500 and indoor gatherings of >100 should not go ahead. They have also asked for the pubs to close as they couldn’t go the distancing recommendations.

Everything done so far has been voluntary.

It’s astounding they do what they like but if we mention it we are the bad guys.

It might be our last hope. The quicker this virus lands in Rathkeale the better for not even this rabid disease could last in the bodies of the local mutants.

The front doors are locked but the punters come in the back door, it's time to stop asking nicely and enforce pub closures altogether.

Had the misfortune to be diverted through Rathkeale once. Thought I had crossed the border with the amount of yellow plates in the town.
It'd be a brave Garda trying to enforce social distancing around there. And to be honest, it's not worth it.

Rubbish the Guards closed a pub the other night.

We all know any discussion on the realities of this mob carries a ban here.
