Publicans want Government to announce financial package today


Publicans want the Government to announce a financial package later today - which the Tanaiste pledged.

The National Public Health Emergency Team is recommending pubs don't reopen on Monday.

Two weeks ago Tanaiste Leo Varadkar said he would bring forward additional supports at today's Cabinet meeting if the closure orders continue.

Paul Moynihan, from the Vintners Federation of Ireland, says many pubs will close for good if they don't get help urgently.
