Later Drink Licences For Pubs On The Cards

Pubs, nightclubs and off licences in Wicklow could be granted longer opening hours under plans being developed by the Government.

This morning Cabinet Ministers are expected to approve the drafting of a new bill to modernise the country's licensing laws.
Junior Minister Hildegarde Naughton is seeking permission to draft the General Scheme of the Sale of Alcohol Bill 2021.
It would repeal a series of licencing laws - some of which date back to the 19th century.
The new laws are likely to include later opening hours for bars and could make it easier for theatres, galleries and other cultural venues to sell alcohol.
