Pride Prohibition

With confirmation that there won't be any booze available around Merrion Square, will this effect the Pride March after party??

I just wonder if people will bother sticking around for the party or is it better that we can show that we can enjoy ourselves sober.

I think most people will spill out to all the bars and venues in town once the parade is over.

I mentioned this in another thread but I don't see Merrion Square lasting beyond this year. The main stage and bar areas were too far apart and everyone seemed to just stay where they are when they arrive.

Was there any reason given as to why there will be no bars out in Merrion Square this year?

No bars...people won't stay around. It's a sad Irish reality

Well there were no bars in the civic centre so can't see what difference it would make,and if would help stop one or two guys falling on me while i'm trying to record the speeches,all the better.

I was only at Civic centre once, I thought there was a bar, but we only stayed for the fantastic performance by Crystal Swing

Can you bring your own little flagons?

Just do a Cheezy and crack open the cans on the street. Is the parade trying to get all family prior to the referendum next year? In fairness, I've never had a drink post parade, I just never saw the need given the context. Here I am walking down the streets of Dublin saying I'm a big queer and up yours if you don't like it. That has always been buzz enough for me (well that day )

Maybe they're afraid of things going queer, after the parade?

I'd say people will converge on Capel Street after the priding is done.

To be honest, I am glad there won't be any drink available at the Pride march itself.

For a couple of years now, I have felt the message of Pride has been lost amongst all the corporate sponsors and open air boozing. Last year when the idea that gay rights groups were to be banned from speaking as the committe wanted to focus on the party, this only confirmed my growing disillusionment with Pride.

Pride should be a celebration and it is. However, the political message should not be lost. It should be a day to go out and be heard. Not be seen staggering around town at 12 in the day gee eyed.

We are not equal in this country. Yes, we have a more open society but until the day we have equal rights, Pride should not be just an open air piss up sponsored by 98FM.

There is loads of venues for after parties. We don't need to have alcohol at the centre of the Pride parade itself.
