Paddy Blues granted per­mis­sion for de­velop new smok­ing area

Gorey Guardian - - NEWS -

Sean Doyle En­ter­tain­ments Ltd has been given the go-ahead to de­velop a smok­ing area to the rear of Paddy Blues pub on North Pa­rade in Gorey.

The company was pre­vi­ously refused re­ten­tion per­mis­sion sev­eral times for a beer gar­den at the pop­u­lar late night venue be­cause of the po­ten­tial for dis­rup­tion to lo­cal res­i­dents.

The company fi­nally pro­posed erect­ing a smok­ing area, with an­cil­lary works and acous­tic bar­rier mea­sures.

In grant­ing per­mis­sion, the coun­cil set spe­cific noise level lim­its dur­ing cer­tain hours, and said the beer gar­den should only be used be­tween the hours of 10 a.m. and 10 p.m.

The company is propos­ing to es­tab­lish a smok­ing area only and to dis­use the re­main­der of the beer gar­den. It plans to build up the wall around the smok­ing area for pri­vacy and noise pro­tec­tion, and to con­struct a lobby to pre­vent noise pol­lu­tion from the bar area.

It will also in­tro­duce sound re­stric­tions within the bar, and re­move au­dio and vis­ual equip­ment from the ex­te­rior.
