They thought it was all over…
On Monday evening, Dublin City Council released the startling news the pedestrianised zones we’ve all been enjoying for outdoor dining and drinking would be no more.
Then, as with many announcements, Twitter did its thing…
The traffic-free zones initiative was first introduced to tackle the initial ruling that only allowed guests to be served outdoors when drinking and dining. It has lasted for 11 weeks and counting, and has largely been viewed as a resounding success, with over 300,000 people taking advantage.
Following the announcement, the post was met with an online backlash, with many feeling that the scheme was working well and reducing the amount of pollution around the streets.
Since then, it has been revealed that the show will go on! Dublin City Council are set to extend the scheme until September 26. By that time, it’ll be getting a little chilly, but many will be relishing the extension by another month.
So, until September 26, you better believe we’ll all be enjoying the outdoor dining scheme as much as we can.
