It wasn’t unexpected that Kerry Independent Teachta Dáila, Danny Healy Rae would be out banging the drum and his chest in indignation at the latest deferral in the pub re-opening saga as announced by the government on Tuesday evening.

Outraged as Publican and TD

“I am outraged as a publican and as a TD representing the publicans and rural Ireland that pubs have not been given a chance to reopen their doors after almost 20 weeks,” said Deputy Healy Rae.

“It is clear that there is no regard for rural pubs and the people in rural Ireland who want to go to their local,” he continued.

Ridiculous Laws

“It is legal for 10 people to gather in a private dwelling and that same number or less cannot now go into a public house.

“These are the ridiculous laws that the Government are forcing on the people of rural Ireland,” he fumed.
