A reported licensing case in Ireland has heard that alcohol licensing rules had to be redrawn to cater for the scale of the Center Parcs resort in Co Longford.
Portlaoise Circuit Court heard from the applicant that the resort’s application was part of “such an enormous project that the old regulations which applied to holiday camps had to be updated”.
The publicans’ license, granted on Friday to the holiday camp company, covers more than 470 acres and is attached to the entire site rather than just one or several structures on it.
In granting the publican’s licence, Judge Johnson is reported to have said the resort would “deliver a tremendous boost not only to the local economy but to the whole country”.
