158

As pubs across the country have been shut since March 15th, people can now enjoy the atmosphere of a bar through Pub.ie.

The website was set up by the owners of the South Dublin pub ‘Ohana’, Sebastian Conway, Tim Cole and Doug Leddin.

The website uses video conferencing software to allow people to see and talk to each other as if they’re in an actual pub.

The pub will also be hosting ‘COVAID’ which will allow people to take part in benefit nights to raise funds for charities and frontline workers as well as others who have lost revenue streams from the outbreak.
