Early Morning Pints At The Airport Might Soon Be A Thing Of The Past

For many Irish people, an early morning flight means an obligatory pint of Guinness (and probably an Insta snap of said pint). 

Sadly, such indulgence could soon be a thing of the past, as new legislation is threatening to ban drinking in airports before 10am.

The Home Office in the UK is trying to close a loophole that lets airport pubs and bars operate outside licensing laws. 

They say a "small minority of people" should not be allowed to disrupt flights by drinking. 

Last year, Ryanair backed a two-drink limit and a complete ban on alcohol at airports before 10am, so change could be on the horizon for Irish airports as well.
