200 Years Licensed Vintners Association
This year marks 200 years since the group that represents publicans in Dublin, the Licensed Vintners Association, opened for business.
During that time, the pub continues to be an integral part of life for many, and remains arguably one of Ireland’s best-known exports...
However the industry is currently facing a host of challenges from supermarkets selling low-cost alcohol, to insurance hikes and new drink driving proposals. So what does the future hold for the Irish pub in the capital - and around the country?Joining us this morning was Deirdre Devitt, Chair of the Licensed Vintners Association.
