Officials are meeting this morning to draw up final guidelines for the reopening of indoor dining for the hospitality sector. A long over due set of guidelines from government is set to give hope to the beleaguered hospitality sector in Tipperary, and the rest of Ireland.
It is expected that officials from both the government and tourism bodies such as Failte Ireland are to meet with the Attorney General to finalise the legal basis for the new rules ahead of the anticipated reopening on Monday.
Speaking with some hospitality owners in Tipperary yesterday, not one of the 11 we surveyed had seen any details of the proposed plan, leaving many in the dark as to what to expect, and an extremely tight timeframe by which to implement the proposed rules and reopen on Monday.
The Chief Executive of the Restaurants Association of Ireland said 20,000 businesses across Ireland want to reopen for indoor hospitality from next Monday.
