A CORK city pub is determined that a hard Brexit doesn’t have to mean hard feelings, and has extended the hand of friendship to our ‘British cousins’.
With less than 80 days to go until Britain is due to leave the European Union on March 29, it is still not clear what form that exit will take.
While British Prime Minister Theresa May struggles to get support for her Brexit deal, many in her own Conservative Party — including Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees Mogg — are dead set against it.
With Labour Party MPs also squabbling with each other, there could even be a general election in the United Kingdom between now and the country’s exit date.
The management of Cork's Sin É pub in Coburg St are no wiser than the rest of us on the complex subject, but they are determined that, even if Brexit plays havoc with sterling, any British visitors can still come and enjoy a reasonably-priced pint.
“To our British cousins we say Hard Brexit — no hard feelings,” reads a post on the pub’s Facebook page.
“If you are visiting in April or May we will give you the finest of pints at today’s exchange rate if things go arseways.
“Never let the politicians get in the way of a good knees-up.”
