Government to consider banning the sale of alcohol after a certain time of the day

Tánaiste Leo Varadkar has stated that the government is considering banning the sale of alcohol after a certain time of the day.

Varadkar added that the government is working on new public health regulations to strengthen the law around public drinking as they further enforce the existing ban of people drinking outdoors in public.

In regards to takeaway pints, Varadkar stated that it was not straight-forward because it could result in a ban on takeaway alcohol for restaurants and off-licences.

Varadkar stated, “People say takeaway points are a problem; ban them. You can’t actually just do that. You’d have to ban all takeaway alcohol and that would create problems for restaurants and takeaways who really need that business now and also off-licences too,”.
