Bewley's on Grafton Street isn't the only retail or service outlet to have locked horns with a landlord over rent. There is now a big logjam in the system around who is paying what in rent and who is not.

Nowhere is this more likely to be true than in shopping centres. Under the Government’s reopening strategy, shopping centres such as Dundrum and the Pavilions in Swords, co-owned by British real estate firm Hammerson, are not pencilled in to open until phase five, or August 10.
