Popular Enniscorthy Pub Makes Decision To Close For Festive Season Due To Covid-19

Although they are different this year, the festivities are well and truly underway…

The latest Covid-19 restrictions have been a blow to the hospitality industry. It means that pubs and restaurants have to close their doors at 8pm.

It is due to the fact that Covid-19 is now rampant in our community again.

On the same day that over 11,000 Covid-19 cases were confirmed in the Republic of Ireland, a popular pup in Enniscorthy County Wexford has been forced to close its doors.

It’s one of the busiest periods of the year for publicans, but the owners at TJ Murphy’s in Enniscorthy have been forced to shut their doors.

This is due to a number of staff testing positive to Covid-19.

In a statement released to their social media channels, they said:

“It’s with deepest regret that due to recent positive antigen tests from several members of our team, we’ve had to make the decision to close the pub from immediate effect in order to keep our families, our customers, and ourselves safe.”

“This new variant is spreading at an alarmingly high rate and we feel its the best and safest thing to do. We want to wish you all a happy, a healthy and a great Christmas.. We will let you know when we intend on reopening,” TJ’s said.

Some members of the public will be disappointed that they will not be able to have a few drinks at TJ’s this Christmas, but many will applaud their decision.
