After 90 years of a puritan (and hypocritical) law, the ban is lifted.
Will you pub-crawl?

The new law was passed, will you get pissed? If you are pro: What about Christmas Day next? If you are against: Why was this more urgent than passing the Public Health (Alcohol) Bill? (To combat over-consumption)

It was never about going to the pub, it was about Catholicism telling me I can't.

I don't drink, so it's just a normal day for me, but a religion shouldn't be interfering with people's choices.

Agree with S4. I don't drink any more either but it was an archaic, religious law that deserves to be relegated to the scrap heap. It will also probably be good for tourism.

I suspect there may be less booze consumed on Good Friday in future because people will no longer obsess about it.

I've noticed a lot of pubs, have closed down on my route and is that a good or bad thing?

I had no problem with the ban at all.

If St. Patrick's Day is anything to go by...

Paddy's day used to be a dry day too, they lifted the ban.
Now rivers of vomit flow through the streets on the day instead of quiet devotion to the patron saint.

Paddy's day is a straight up drinking holiday, no two bones about it. Better to stay home.

Paddy’s day is a complete piss up. Town is a dreadful mess that evening. I’ve avoided it for years - even when my drinking days were in full swing.

How many dry days did there used to be for religious reasons? I well remember the Sunday “holy hour” back in the 90s from 2-4pm which was basically a pub lock in.

I think the 2-4pm sunday closing was on the statute books about 60 years
