Limerick vinters to launch court bid to open on Good Friday

Limerick vintners have confirmed they are going to court in an attempt to overturn the Good Friday closure order.

They are to make an application to Limerick District Court next week, seeking permission to open their pubs to take advantage of the Magners league clash at Thomond Park on April 2, Good Friday.

They will be making their case on the basis that publicans in the city would lose out on an estimated €6m in revenue if they are forced to remain closed on the day.
