Pubs are finally allowed to sell drink on Good Friday and some are really making the most of it.

Two pubs, that we know of it, opened their doors at 7am and have been serving pints to the thirsty public since.

Slattery's Pub on Grand Canal Street was one of the pubs with people strolling in for a quick pint before midday.

Similarly the Boar's Head on Capel Street also opened their doors early for anyone looking for an early scoop.

Today is the first Good Friday in 90 years that the ban has been lifted.

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."
