Government TD Says It’s An Insult To Live Events Sector That Croke Park Can Be Half Full This Weekend But Live Gigs Still Can’t Happen
Marc MacSharry is one of a number of members of the Government to criticise the pace of reopening.
The Taoiseach Micheál Martin has said clarity will be provided for the sector on August 31st.
But his Fianna Fáil colleague colleague Marc MacSharry believes the current rules make little sense:
“And I think it makes a mockery and an insult to the entertainment community to say that you can have 40,000 in Croke Park on Sunday and again for the football All-Ireland, but yet the fine musicians you had playing on this show earlier on, can’t have a live gig.”
