Poll: Did you go to the pub today?

For the first time in nearly a century the pubs in Ireland are open today.

TODAY IS GOOD Friday, and while it used to be one of only two days a year when all pubs had to close (the other being Christmas day), for the first time in 90 years, they’re open today.

A 1927 law dictating alcohol could not be sold on the Friday before Easter was overturned this year.

So, today we’re asking you: Did you go to the pub today?

Poll Results:

No (11516)
Yes (2392)
No, but I'm going later (560)
