Pubs to be policed by inspectors & Failte Ireland staff


The new restrictions on pubs will be monitored by hundreds of health and safety inspectors and Failte Ireland staff.

The Irish Times reports bars will face no criminal sanctions for breaking the rules.

People are supposed to have a substantial meal if visiting a pub and leave after 105 minutes.

Pubs found to be in breach of the rules may face difficulty renewing their licence.
