Good Friday pub ban is utter nonsense

I must comment on Fr Adrian Egan's assertions regarding Good Friday ('Priest saddened by vintners' bid for holy day opening', Irish Independent, March 9). He says it his opinion that "the match should not go ahead", never mind the pubs just opening.

This man needs to get into the 21st century.

First of all, if people wish to go down to the pub to watch rugby on Good Friday that's their business, it is not the place of a Catholic priest to be dictating when and where we watch sport.
