Cheers! Kilkenny’s pubs to reopen on September 21
All of Kilkenny’s pub can reopen from September 21, it was confirmed today.
The Government has agreed that pubs that do not serve food will be able to start serving alcohol again from that date.
This will be subject to local restrictions that may arise from time to time.
Other items such as international travel restrictions and attendance at sports events are likely to be dealt with in the Government’s medium-term Living With Covid-19 plan, which is set to be published next Monday.
Draft Government guidelines, which were drawn up in conjunction with Fáilte Ireland, were circulated to vintners’ groups last weekend.
They are broadly the same as those that have been brought in for pubs where food is being served.
