Default Garda Attacking Cork Music

Gardai have been 'persuading' City Music Venues to stop bands playing a half hour before serving last pint. This is damaging both Music and Bar business, and peoples' fun time. There is probably a new Garda operator in town trying to make his/her mark. Let's help, anyone know the name? @Matlock and other Legal heads out there, is there any basis in Law for stopping entertainment before last drink served? If so is it specific to Live entertainment as opposed to Electronic? If there is such a silly Law when apply it now all of a sudden?
Let's show some Republic Hospitality to this new Sheriff. Let's make the name behind attacking Music widely known to all. Let's not permit the cliche of another fresh aggressive friendless blow- in. Above all let's let them know that the Law is employed by The People here.

Is this persuasion being applied to all live music regardless of what time they close or just late bars like the Crane that have late licenses?

BTW thread title looks odd..."attacking" seems at odds with "persuading". I was half expecting to see a story about some crazed Garda baton charging a band off a stage!

Maybe Ken O'Flynn TD could do something about it?

Are some of the Spring Lane boyos in any of these bands being 'attacked'?

It's a small step from Crane Lane to Spring Lane.

It seems to be both Live and DJ and it is happening in venues operating during normal weekend hours without extensions. e.g. Music stops at 12 Midnight or thereabouts.
I was in town on a night when Gardai, many of them, started at Washington Street, making their way into town, shutting down music as they went.
Some venues seem unaffected, or perhaps unintimidated. I believe there is no basis in Law for a half hour early termination of entertainment.
