Indoor Dining Legislation being signed into Law
Andrea reacts to the indoor dining legislation being signed into law.
President Michael D Higgins has signed the new indoor dining rules into law.
It paves away for the partial reopening of indoor pubs and restaurants from next Monday.
Under the legislation, people who are fully vaccinated or can prove their recovery from the virus can enjoy indoor hospitality.
There will be no time limits on visits to pubs and restaurants and premises will still have to close at 11.30pm, despite a push from the industry for later hours.
The rules will remain in place until October 9th, unless the Oireachtas opts to lift them early or extend them for a further three months.
The Cork chairman of the Vintners Federation of Ireland Michael O’Donovan welcomed the decision to scrap time limit plans.
“It will stop people from going from pub to pub to pub and doing pub crawls,” he said.
