VIDEO: Rural pubs ‘need to get up and running’ – Fitzmaurice

Independent TD, Michael Fitzmaurice has described the delayed re-opening of pubs as a “hammer blow” for rural Ireland.

He made the statement on Thursday, July 16th during a session where TDs questioned the government on promised legislation.

“Anyone who had a bull’s iota about rural Ireland would know that in most pubs in rural Ireland during the week, there might not be four or five people.” 

“I think ye [the government] should re-look at it again, because these pubs need to get up and running for the survival of the business itself, but also for communities through rural areas.” the deputy added.
