Poll: Will you go to the pub this Good Friday?

After 91 years, Irish people will be legally allowed buy a pint in a pub on Good Friday.

IT’S GOING. IT’S finally going. After nearly 100 years, you’ll be able to go into the pub on Good Friday and have a pint.

After passing through the Houses of the Oireachtas, the law will be signed by President Michael D Higgins next week and be in effect for this Good Friday.

The prohibition was originally included in the Intoxicating Liquor Act, 1927, which set out closures for three days – Good Friday, Christmas Day and St Patrick’s Day. The St Patrick’s Day ban was lifted in 1960.

So, this evening we want to know: Will you go to the pub this Good Friday?

Poll Results:
