Huge Surge In People Across Cork Trying To Make Indoor Dining And Hospitality Bookings
That’s according to Paul Montgomery, the owner of Clancys Bar who was speaking as indoor hospitality is set to return on Monday
President Michael D. Higgins signed new legislation into law earlier today and hundreds of pubs and restauraunts across the county are preparing to reopen for indoor service next Monday.
However, here in Cork a number of publicans have announced their intention to postpone their indoor dining service as their young staff have not yet been vaccinated.
The Bulman in Kinsale and Longboats in Blackrock, announced they won’t be bringing back indoor dining on Monday and Benny McCabe who owns 13 pubs across the city says he will wait and see how long it takes for workers to get vaccinated before reopening inside
Speaking to RedFM News, Clancy’s owner Paul Montgomery says a lot of people are eager to socialise in areas where everyone is vaccinated:
“We know it from phone calls straight away today, just based on that. The demand has been huge, and a lot of people want to be indoors. and a lot of people want to be where people are vaccinated, so it’s going to suit a certain cohort of people to be inside, and it’s going to suit a lot of our customer base. I have no doubt it will make a huge difference to our business next week.”
