The government has announced a new €17 million scheme to develop a European-style outdoor dining culture.

The Outdoor Dining Enhancement Scheme, delivered in partnership between Fáilte Ireland and local authorities across the country, will provide for outdoor seating and "accessories" to help businesses offset some of the costs incurred in upgrading their premises for outdoor dining.

But will this scheme help the majority of restaurants who have been closed due to the restrictions?
