Pub opening hours to be extended to 2am.
« on: November 23, 2005, 10:15:52 PM »
Although the government has rejected 24-hour drinking laws for Northern Ireland, pubs will still be allowed to extend their opening hours until 2 a.m.

Will it curb binge drinking or will it mean greater consumption and more trouble for staff, police and nearby residents?

It depends how the people react.
People are responsible for their own actions.
But I can say that it will cause some trouble but hopefully not to much!

I believe it will be the catalyst for more lost work hours, violence and the non parenting of some. These folk who stay drinking until 2Am are more apt to not get up and feed their children or send them to school

I would hate the opening hours to be extended.  After a night out at the Odyssey, or indeed in the City Centre itself, the behaviour of people is dreadful.  At the Odyssey, the amount of police needed to control the crowds exiting is getting out of hand.  Between people urinating in the streets, vomiting, fighting or just basically making a nuisance of themselves.  The opening hours as they stand are bad enough.

Look lets face it guys and gals
Belfast is fairly violent, in the city center at pub closing.   Through their actions , the punters have already shown that they are NOT, capable of holding their beer
So why give them more time to screw up and cause others distress ?

Speaking of pubs
Anyone know of a guy or family in the liquor business, by the name of "Dorian," that may have moved to the USA.?
Lets say within the last 40 years?

Hiya Mageeka,

I sent a message to Colette about this one.
She has a 1969 Street Directory of Belfast.
That may show a Dorian who owned a Belfast Pub.

All the Best,

Christopher
