Walking into one of my favourite Dublin pubs was a nerve-wracking experience on the first day of opening after lockdown but, within minutes, I felt at ease.

Doheny & Nesbitt is an institution in the capital. It neighbours the Dáil and is a stone's throw from Grafton Street.

I'm told Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe grabbed a takeaway meal here the other day. However, none of the new ministers is booked in just yet.
