Dec 18th 2018, 8:03 AM 72,125 105

A MOTION CALLING for the closure of the Dáil bar has been proposed by a member of Kerry Vintners’ Federation who hopes it will go before a national congress.

Sean O’Mahoney, who owns a pub in Killarney brought the proposal before the local grouping and said it was inappropriate for members of the Dáil to be seen consuming alcohol at their place of work. 

He said that the taxpayer should not be footing the bill for the subsidised alcohol prices. However it is understood that the Dáil bar does not have subsidised alcohol prices.

So, today we want to know: Should the Dáil bar be closed down? 

Poll Results:

Yes (12588)
No (3072)
I'm not sure / No opinion (572)
