Have you ever had your meal or cup of coffee interrupted by a screaming child?

In our Monday debate, we looked at the issue of children in public places.

A growing number of restaurants and hotels are now banning children at certain times of the day, or in some cases, all day.

But do children have as much right to be in these places as adults?

Or should more restaurants, bars, hotels and cafés adopt a 'zero tolerance' approach to noisy children?

We were joined by chef and restaurateur Gary O'Hanlon, Alan Andrews, owner of Old Barracks Coffee Roastery in Birdhill, who has banned under-18s, Lisa Cope of allfood.ie, and Sarah Slattery of travelexpert.ie.
