Limerick pub to keep vaccination requirement after October 22nd

A Limerick pub owner has announced that he will be keeping the requirement to be vaccinated to enter his pub after the 22nd of October.

With most of the current Covid-19 restrictions being eased from October 22nd, pub owner Gearóid Whelan announced on Twitter that he intends to keep the vaccine requirement for indoor dining past that date.


Geróid, who is the owner of Whelan’s Bar on Maiden Street in Newcastle West stated, “We at Whelans Bar will be keeping up the vaccine only going forward, so for all ye anti-vax f***s that think ye are getting in on the 22nd of October go and f**k yourselves,”.

He added, “And I know my language isn’t appropriate but it’s the only language them idiots seem to understand, so for all the normal followers I have just ignore it, the anti-vax crowd can,”.

Although a major chunk of the current Covid-19 restrictions is to be removed after the 22nd of October, Health Minister Stephen Donnelly stated a return to restrictions, although unlikely, cannot be ruled out and is therefore seeking an extension on the legal framework that allows restrictions to be imposed under the Health Act (Amendment) 2021.
