Re-opening select pubs could be devisive

With reports circulating today that pubs which serve food may be set to open on June 29th (six weeks earlier than expected), concerns have been raised that such a move could divide Publicans across the north west.

Bars and restaurants are hoping to get back in business next month.

Restaurants are allowed open at the end of June, while pubs have to stay closed until August 10th.

Sligo Publican Blaine Gaffney says allowing some pubs to open while others remain closed could be a devisive move.
