CHRISTMAS DAY AND Good Friday are the two days out of the year when the pubs close.

This might change soon, as the Justice Minister Frances Fitzgerald said allowing pubs to open on Good Friday is something the Government is looking into.


Fitzgerald said that the public is “deeply divided” on the issue.

We headed out this week to ask people on the street what they thought, but now we want to know what the rest of you think:

Poll: Should pubs open on Good Friday? 

Poll Results:

Yes, it's time the law changed (9695)
No, keep them closed (5959)
I don't know (544)

Perhaps you work in a pub and it’s a nice day off for you, or maybe you think Ireland could do with one day without drink being sold. Tell us your thoughts in the comments section
