It is expected that the National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET) will make a wide range of recommendations on the easing of restrictions when it meets on Thursday.

Some of these are set to include changes to the 8pm closing time for bars and restaurants, along with an increase in the number of people allowed to attend both indoor and outdoor events.

Early indications suggest that a new closing time for bars, restaurants and cultural venues could be set at midnight from the end of this month or in early February.

A further easing of restrictions would then take place at a later date when the requirement on premises would possibly be scaled back to just checking Covid passes.

More people could also be allowed to attend weddings soon, while a gradual return to the workplace might get under way at some point next month.

There are also suggestions that outdoor sports venues could return to full capacity.

While no decision has been made yet about when Government might sign-off on any planned changes, many within its ranks believe it could happen as early as Friday.

Midnight was the pre covid closing time for pubs pre covid Monday to Thursday, with last call 11.30pm and Sundays 11pm.
It's basically cutting one hour off pubs closing times on Friday and Saturday. The night clubs bearing the brunt again. The nphet lads must have never got the shift in Coppers or something.

I've actually enjoyed the 8pm closing. I go for a walk around town most evenings and the streets are deserted by 9pm, with only the occasional junkie and the light of the moon for company

NEPHTs Sam McConkey made a comment on national radio (in the wake of the tragic murder of Aishling Murphy) that men should have to have some kind of qualification/licence/certificate to allow them enter the social sphere..

That tells you all you need to know about where these fellas heads are..
