Many of you may enjoy a late night pint down at your local, but Dublin residents could forced to sit at home next week due to the current water restrictions.
According to The Irish Daily Star newspaper, pubs across the greater Dublin area are preparing for the worst and they could be forced to close their doors at 10pm next week if Irish Water continues to impose night time water restrictions.
The Daily Star say a member of the Licensed Vintners Association told them that publicans could be forced to close their doors either by the weekend or early next week as the lack of water pressure is hampering their trade.
In a interview with The Daily Star, the spokespman said bars and clubs could forced to close their doors at 10pm due to the level 2 restrictions which sees a drop in water pressure.
The spokesman told the paper due to the restrictions, a number of much needed services such as toilets and kitchen appliances will not be able to operate properly because of the low pressure.
Although the spokesman said some pubs do operate with water storage tanks, the current restrictions implemented in the region now means that pubs cannot operate without adequate water supplies.
Meanwhile Irish Water say they will review the situation on Monday once the current night-time restrictions end.
The state utility say further restrictions could be implemented due to declining water supplies in the region.
