As Wexford's 'wet' pubs prepare to reopen on Monday next, September 21 after six months of lockdown, well-known Bullring publican Eddie Macken said he is looking forward to getting back behind the counter but also apprehensive about what is in store.

'I'm looking forward to seeing my regular customers again but like a lot of publicans I'm apprehensive about what's going to happen.'

'I think it would have been better if we could all have reopened together. When the pubs serving food were allowed to open, the Covid-19 figures were low . Now they're up again and we're facing into the winter and people getting the flu'.
