It’s A Good Friday For Pubs & Restaurants

Legislation to end the 90-year old prohibition on pubs from opening on Good Friday, has now passed all stages in Seanad Éireann.

The Intoxicating Liquor (Amendment) Bill was introduced by Independent Senator Billy Lawless. Senator Lawless of course sold his family’s dairy farm in the late 1970’s, and was running several bars and hotels in Galway by the early 1990’s. Today he claims that a message has been sent to the world that “Ireland is a pluralist, globalist, forward-thinking country”, and has made yet “another progressive step in Ireland’s long journey in the separation of Church and State”.

Of course ‘Binge drinking in Ireland,’ according to Senator Lawless, is caused by the sale of low cost alcohol from certain licensed premises.  [I agree Senator, sure is not low cost sales of Cocaine the reason for compulsive, out of control, use of drugs.  Ops, no, sorry, Senator, a Cocaine habit I believe is very expensive, and funding of same leads to most of the crime currently being committed in today’s pluralist, globalist, forward-thinking country, where Seanad Éireann little by little remain hell bent on successfully separating Church from State.]

Senator Lawless pointed out that the new legislation will apply to all pubs and restaurants, and licensed premises will be able to open on Good Friday, after this Bill is passed through the Dáil, before being signed into law by the President.

Perhaps Seanad Éireann would be better off introducing a Bill correcting issues such as the 1,200 children living in Direct Provision In Ireland, whose human rights as children have been negatively impacted. In thirty years time will this issue become yet another 21st century ‘Magdalene Laundry scenario’, seeking justice under yet another expensive Commission of Investigation.

Perhaps we should remove Good Friday from the list of Church Holidays altogether, and make it just another normal working day for bankers, post office workers and civil servants, thus completing the further separation of State from Church.
