A €2 million fund is being set up by the Government to allow late-night venues like pubs and nightclubs to get money to pay for soundproofing.
It's part of efforts to create a thriving nightlife sector in Ireland, but also not to disturb people who live nearby as many nightclubs and late bars are in residential areas.
They will be able to apply for up to €70,000 each which could include the replacement of old noise cancelling systems and the installation of an outdoor noise barrier.
Under plans given to Cabinet last year, Justice Minister Helen McEntee said nightclubs would be able to open until 6am, while late bars would be able to run until 2.30am.
However, the legislation has faced opposition and is somewhat stalled in the Oireachtas.
There were claims earlier this year from nightlife campaigners that there were attempts by health charities to use 'delay tactics' to slow down reform.
Speaking today, Culture Minister Catherine Martin she understands there are issues within the sector, "it has been a difficult time for late-night venues since the pandemic and I am aware that the cost of living crisis has put further pressure on our Night-Time Economy Sector.
"I will continue to work with the industry as we continue to navigate our way through this particularly challenging period.”
