Friday, 22 October is the day on which the majority of Covid-19 restrictions are to be lifted in Ireland, allowing the return of the nightlife sector.
The news about Copper Face Jacks' return comes after Minister for Culture Catherine Martin said earlier in the week that there could be room to see Irish pubs and clubs allowed to stay open until 6am after their long-awaited return.
Speaking at the launch of the night-time economy taskforce report in Dublin, she told the Irish Mirror that "the opportunity should be there".
When asked if she would like to see drinking and dancing be permitted until 6am throughout the country, she told the publication: “Yes, why not, I think that opportunity should be there.
“I think shutting down, Dublin, we’re working way behind our other European cities.
“It can be done, it can be done in a safe way and I think that option definitely should be there.”
