WITH the majority of pubs expected to open their doors on Monday, the owners of one city pub have taken to decision to delay their reopening to do what’s best for their staff and customers.
Owners of The Vale Pub, M A Heffernan’s, in Kilcohan released a statement saying with “a heavy heart” they made the decision not to reopen the popular pub on Monday, September 21.
“To all our valued friends and customers, at this stage, both I and the team here at Heffernan’s are absolutely and totally frustrated, angry and tired of being closed for over six months now. We want nothing more than to be back open and serving you, so that we can get some sort of normality into our lives.
“We’ve been watching the situation very carefully and we have to do what’s best for our staff and our customers. For that reason, we are going to watch the local and national situation for at least a week to see how the reopening of ‘wet pubs’ goes. And most importantly to see what impact it has on the public health situation. Thank you for your patience and understanding.”
