DO YOU THINK that pubs should be allowed to reopen this month?

Twice now, their reopening has been delayed because of the extent to which the novel coronavirus is spreading – leaving publicans worried and under financial strain.

The point has been raised – including by Tánaiste Leo Varadkar during a parliamentary party meeting – that Ireland is an outlier in Europe in not allowing its pubs to reopen.

Recently, 21 September has been suggested as the next possible date they could reopen – despite a Dublin-driven rise in confirmed Covid-19 cases over the past week.

So, we’re asking: do you think ‘wet’ pubs should be allowed to reopen this month?


Poll Results:

Yes, absolutely (11500)
No, not yet (6582)
Yes but only if the cases go down (4091)
I don't think they should open until there's a vaccine (1616)
