- Feb 3, 2011
It is my recollection that at the weekends during December 2012 that the pubs and restaurants in Dublin City centre were busier than weekends normally.Sure it's hardly surprising the month on month increase from November to December in stuff like department store goods in December with Christmas on the way and the increase in bars is unsurprising given the massive upsurge pubs experience as soon as the month of December begins. In pubs in Dublin City Centre at weekends in the run up to Christmas you can't even get a standing space.
Cumulatively though the figures for all trade in December 2012 was lower than all trade in November 2012.
You'd expect that under normal circumstances December would show an improvement on November.
