The Government has asked all pubs around Ireland to shut their doors from Sunday night

It follows discussions with the Licenced Vintners Association (LVA) and the Vintners Federation of Ireland (VFI).

The Government is now calling on all public houses and bars, including hotel bars, to close until at least March 29th.

The LVA and VFI outlined "the real difficulty" in implementing the guidelines on social distancing in a public house setting, as "pubs are specifically designed to promote social interaction".
