Take-Away Pints are Back

Gardaí and the Government have confirmed there will be no prohibition on bars or restaurants serving alcohol to customers outdoors as licensed businesses begin pulling pintspints0520 for people once again from today.
A gradual easing of restrictions today means that two households can meet outdoors for social or leisure activities – however,  people are asked not to meet in each other’s gardens. 
People can also now travel within their county or within 20km of their home if it crosses a county boundary.
Meanwhile, all first to fourth-year secondary school pupils will return to the classroom today.
Takeaway pints were never officially banned under Covid-19 restrictions but Taoiseach Micheál Martin called for them to stop being sold at the beginning of the current lockdown.
Pub and restaurant representative groups also asked their members to refrain from selling on-street alcohol when the country was put under Level 5 lockdown in December.
Lockdown restrictions will be eased in Northern Ireland today for the first time this year.
