People in Longford are against legislation passed by the Dáil, which allows publicans to serve alcohol on Good Friday, a Longford Leader poll can reveal.

The poll, which was posted on the Longford Leader website at the end of January asked the people of Longford whether or not they agreed that the ban should be lifted.

Results showed that 44% of those polled agree that publicans should be allowed to serve alcohol on Good Friday.

However, the remaining 56% of Longfordians who took part in the poll were against the new legislation, stating that the ban on alcohol should not be lifted.
