Spare a thought for all the bemused tourists realising the pubs are closed today

What joker decided to call it ‘Good’ Friday, eh?

HAPPY GOOD FRIDAY! Or should we say happy Confused Tourists, Stags and Hen Parties Day?

As the people of Ireland know all too well, the pubs and off-licenses of Ireland are completely shut for all of Good Friday. But the poor tourists don’t know that.

We kept an eye on them with the Temple Bar Earth Cam, and this is what we saw – the full spectrum of human emotion, from hope and delight to sadness and despair.
