Spiegeltent gets alcohol licence
THE ORGANISERS of the Spiegeltent Festival have been granted an occasional licence to serve alcohol at the quayside venue.
This year's festival runs from October 23 until November 3, during Wexford Opera Festival.
A solicitor acting on behalf of Michael Tierney as a nominee of Real Bars Ltd sought two occasional licences; one from October 23 to 28 and another from October 29 to November 3.
Wexford District Court heard that the gardaí had no objection to the application as two similar licences were granted this time last year for the 2012 event. Judge Gerard Haughton said he had no objection to the application, granting the licences.
Details of the expanded music and entertainment festival – which is expected to attract thousands of people to the town – were announced earlier this month.
