Donegal pub introduces Covid-19 jar to fine people talking about the virus

Words: Eva O’Beirne

The Alt Bar in Killea, Co. Donegal is now charging customers 2 euro every time they mention Covid-19.

Managers Christopher Moore and Conor McDevitt introduced the jar to the Donegal pub on Friday night, but it has already been filled with over 100 euro.

All money raised will be going to Donegal Hospice which provides physical, emotional and spiritual care for individuals and families experiencing life-limiting illnesses and bereavement.

Speaking to the Irish Examiner, Christopher described the initial shock of not being allowed to discuss the virus: “It was actually funny because after two years of talking about it, when we introduced the jar, there was silence. People didn’t really know what else to talk about initially.”

“So we are back chatting about local issues, politics and global warming and just having the craic again.”
