Now that we know when exactly the next general election will be (Saturday February 8th), we can expect the eager rapping of a canvasser’s knock on your door. It’s a fact of life.

While there are many, many issues facing the country which will inform your decision on who to vote for in the coming general election, the current state of Ireland’s nighttime economy and licensing laws are beyond backwards. Electing TDs and a government with a sensitivity to this could help many artists, promoters and members of the public.
