Good Friday is now a normal day in terms of alcohol in Ireland after the ban was lifted.

The 90 year ban meant pubs could not open and alcohol could not be sold in Ireland on the day but that is no more.

Here is everything you need to know.

Are off licenses open?

Yes, off licenses just like pubs are allowed sell alcohol today and will be doing so for the most part.

Big chains such as Tesco, Supervalu and the likes will be running on normal hours if you are considering heading for a few cans.

Are all Dublin pubs open?

While all pubs are allowed to be open this doesn't necessarily mean that they are.

Naturally each pub can decide themselves if they wish to open or not so some may remain shut.

Will pubs be busy?

It certainly looks like people will be making the most of the lifting of the ban.

The Vintners’ Federation of Ireland said removing the ban was about introducing choice for the customer and the publican.

Chief Padraig Cribben added: “The extra day’s business is a welcome boost to the pub trade. It is estimated Good Friday will generate over €40million in sales for pubs throughout the country.
