University of Limerick Young Fine Gael supports the call from the Irish Nightclub Industry Association for the cut in the late opening fees.

At present, nightclubs are required to pay €410 per night of late night opening, and we agree that a cut to €200 would be sustainable, as this would encourage the creation of jobs in the industry.

Clubs are being forced to charge excessive entrance fees due to declining revenue. A reduction in the late fee will be a boost for clubs, especially in rural areas that are on the brink of closing down.
