Proposals to get rid of a fee of over 400 euro which pubs and nightclubs have to pay to stay open late have been welcomed by the Licenced Vintners Federation.

Justice Minister Helen McEntee is planning new legislation this year that would mean pubs and clubs will no longer have to go court for a late license.

Minister McEntee is set to unveil plans on the sale of alcohol to give the "night-time economy" a boost after the pandemic.

The measures also include staggering and extended closing times for bars, pubs and nightclubs and extended Sunday hours for pubs.

The Vintners' Federation has expressed reservations about the plan -- saying venues like theatres and galleries should not be allowed sell drink without a full pub license.
