    Ireland is closing all its pubs from today. It will happen here soon.

    Fine by me, just so long as it's a lock-in!

    If/when they do shut the pubs we'll see who's still contributing reviews three weeks in.

    In rural Ireland (and increasingly here) pubs often double as the village shop. You do wonder if those popping in for a pint of milk and a loaf may well stop for a "chat" with the guvnor. And forget they went for a pint of milk and a loaf.

    It will spell the end for many pubs who are hanging on by a thread, especially rural pubs. And on the busiest day of the year, St Patrick's Day, a disaster...

    Yup. A vast number of pubs will simply never reopen. If off in search of a pub that's open - I can't give myself the virus.
