Pubs across Ireland will definitely stay closed this Good Friday, but there have been numerous calls in recent years to change what has been referred to as a “dated practice”.

Successive governments have shown little willingness to change the 1927 law but publicans have said that closing the pubs on the Easter weekend “sends a very negative signal to tourists and visitors” and also harms local businesses.
