Bring it on.
Cabinet is set to discuss making some major changes to the way nightlife works in Ireland, including possible staggering and extended closing times for bars.
According to a report by RTÉ, the measures being discussed by Cabinet are a precursor to the introduction of the General Scheme of the Sale of Alcohol Bill by Fine Gael Minister of State Hildegarde Naughton.
Other measures on the table include relaxing the requirements for cultural spaces such as theatres and concert venues to obtain licenses to sell alcohol, as well as a proposal to bringing Sunday opening hours in line with the rest of the week.
Minister for Arts, Tourism, Culture and Sport Catherine Martin will also bring a report to the government detailing plans for six Night-Time Economy Committees, to be established in six cities and towns across Ireland.
The purpose of these committees would be to get the most out of existing spaces by linking them with musicians and performers, including a plan to use empty buildings as cultural spaces. Also being considered is a proposal to provide support for cafes and clubs to stay open later between Monday and Thursday in order to facilitate live performances.
