In 2022, over 100 more pubs across the country closed their doors - representing a continued downward trend over decades, with a total decline of almost 2,000 pubs since 2005. This trend has not abated following Covid-19, with many pubs in rural areas facing into a real fight for survival.

In this report, you will read an economic and social analysis by Professor Anthony Foley of Dublin City University who notes that there is likely to be a negative social impact arising from the closure of public houses, especially in rural and remote areas.
