Bingo players are staging a protest outside the Dail today against a new bill which players say could "kill the game".

The proposal could see prize money cut by 50% of the fund collected by organisers.

It will come before the Dáil tomorrow.

The ‘Save Our Bingo’ campaign says halls across the country could close if it's passed.

Naomi Reilly from the Save our Bingo' campaign group says it's about much more than playing bingo:

"For elderly people sometimes it's the only place for them to go.

When you go in you socialise, have a cup of tea or coffee, and chat with friends."
