O'Flaherty's Bar of Buncrana, Co. Donegal, has been ordered to cease its delivery service by the gardaí.
As reported by The Irish Independent, the bar had been delivering pints of Guinness to its regular customers via car and bike in recent weeks, but the gardaí have now put a stop to the service due to complaints.
"Forced To Stop The Guinness Express"
The Irish Independent quotes a spokesperson for the bar as saying, "Sorry folks, unfortunately tonight [Saturday May 16] we were forced to stop the Guinness Express.
"We were swarmed by one undercover garda, two patrol cars, one sergeant and one uniformed garda."
The spokesperson added that a number of pints were confiscated and that the bar has been having discussions with the gardaí about the legality of its delivery service.
"A Result Of Public Complaints"
Garda superintendent Eugene McGovern stated, "We can confirm that an operation was put in place as a result of public complaints.
"Alcohol was seized and a file on the matter will be sent to the director of public prosecutions."
