Beauchamps' Litigation team led by Barry Cahir representing Sean's Bar - Ireland's Oldest Pub welcomed today's High Court decision in favour of the pub owners that a policy bought from FBD Insurance covered losses the pubs suffered by having to close due to COVID-19.
In a landmark decision, this positive outcome affects claims made by over 1,000 Irish pubs and restaurants, in which the judge found that a policy sold by FBD covered losses the pubs suffered by having to close due to the public health emergency.
Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise Leo Varadkar described today's decision as a "very significant judgment in a major test case".
Beauchamps welcome today's judgment, signifying a positive result for Sean's Bar and for other businesses relying on the outcome of this action.
Sean's Bar, located in Athlone is officially Ireland's oldest pub, established around AD 900, as certified by the Guinness Book of World Records.
