Owner of Treyvaud's Restaurant in Kerry details plans to open July 1st  'no matter what'

Taking to social media to outline his intentions to open his restaurant on July 1st "no matter what", Kerry restaurateur Paul Treyvaud - owner of Treyvaud's Restaurant in Co Kerry-  tweeted to say:

"I have decided I am opening my restaurant July 1st no matter what. That gives them 4 months to sort out everything. I’ve done everything I’ve been told to do. 55k came in from uk with that variant, now over 1500 from Brazil. The problem is no longer us. It’s an incompetent Gov.

Adding that he is "prepared to be arrested if need be", Mr Treyvaud said that having something to work towards has helped put his mind at ease.

"At least in my head I now have a date and it’s put everything at ease. I am prepared to be arrested if need be. I no longer care. I’m not a conspiracy nut job so don’t bother telling me to open up now. I’ve done the maths and if I’m not open by then, everything is gone."

Admitting that he is angry, annoyed and has "lost all hope with the people running the show", Treyvaud finished by saying:

"I’m opening my restaurant for indoor dining 1/7/21. I'm not telling any business that has been forced to shut to do the same. But all I'll say is that there is strength in numbers."
