Does Beoir have an official stance on the licensing hours that operate here on Zgood Friday & Christmas Day?

I have no problem staying out of a pub on either day, or any other day, but I do like a choice and think that people should be free to exercise their own choices.

I'd agree with that. Prohibition is wrong. But no, it's not something we've ever campaigned about.

I have to say I feel the same as CDow about this. I don't have a problem with staying out of the pub, but I don't like being told I'm not [b:16f414ui]allowed[/b:16f414ui] to go to the pub. It's inconvenient, particularly with it being the Friday of a bank holiday weekend. The fact that it has its roots in a religion I don't happen to subscribe to doesn't make me feel any better about it either.

I like to make sure I have at least on beer and a serving of red meat on the day in question.

I always try to get a brew done on bad friday. Also, there's usually a Leinster game in the RDS and the bars inside are open ( it's a private club <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D --> ), and just in case I've a couple of cans of Punk IPA chilling in the fridge anyway. Add a burger from one of the on-site vendors, a Leinster bonus point win and voi-la, Great Friday!

But yes concur with above, there are many many days in the year when I don't go to the pub. Indeed there are many many - well ok - some - days in the year I don't even have a drink - like yesterday for example. But it should be MY choice. Not some archaic sky-fairy worshippers who get to decide what *I* do with *MY* time.

I think believers should feel free to observe the day however they see fit, but the state's role as it stands, curtailing everyone else by default, is pretty inappropriate.
