Publicans call for indoor dining from July 1st
Publicans are calling for indoor trade to resume on July first, three weeks after outdoor dining reopens.
In the North, bars and restaurants can now serve customers indoors for the first time this year and the Vintners Federation of Ireland is encouraging the Irish Government to follow suit.
Chief Executive of the VFI Padraig Cribben says reopening is crucial for business’ survival.
“It’s very important in the context of viability of business, because every counts from the point of view of viability for small businesses, for family businesses, and the people employed by them.
“We appreciate and have always maintained that public health is paramount.”
