How has Ireland changed since lifting the Alcohol ban for Good Friday?

Nestled amidst the stunning landscapes of Ireland, Wexford town stands as a testament to the country’s evolving cultural landscape. For more than nine decades, the country adopted a controversial ban on the sale of alcohol, effectively transforming Ireland into a dry state on Good Friday. However, in 2018, this long-standing tradition came to an end, sparking a new era of transformation and rejuvenation for towns like Wexford.

As I embark on a journey through the streets of Wexford six years after the ban was lifted, the significant changes that have taken place are palpable. Both locals and visitors can now experience a vibrant social scene, offering a delightful mix of traditional Irish charm and modernity.

As Ireland bid farewell to nearly a century of prohibition on Good Friday in 2018, Wexford emerged as a shining example of a town transformed by the lifting of the ban. The town has flourished, embracing the opportunities that come with social and cultural liberation. From revitalized pubs and burgeoning craft breweries to an enhanced tourism industry, Wexford continues to showcase its unique blend of tradition and progress. Walking through the charming streets, this transformation becomes evident, leaving visitors with a sense of awe and delight.
