I never thought I’d see the day, but pubs across Ireland have closed the night before St. Patrick’s day in an attempt to limit the spread of Coronavirus.

This move comes after a busy weekend across the European nation, where an extra 40 cases of the novel coronavirus Covid-19 were verified in the past 2 days.

I guess if Canadians can give up hockey for a few months, Ireland can give up a trip to the pub!
