More than 4 in 10 pubs in Dublin are planning on reopening as restaurants at the end of June, according to a survey by the Licensed Vintners Association.

Under the government's roadmap, bars can't begin operating again until August 10th.

However, a number of pubs are hoping to use a loophole to reopen sooner than planned.

Chief Executive of the LVA, Donal O'Keefe, says those with "substantial food businesses can comply with social distancing requirements and can operate on the same basis as restaurants".

The organisation is also critical of the government, saying they've had "no engagement so far" and that members are "in active planning to re-open on June 29th" when the likes of restaurants will also be allowed to open their doors again.
