Punters can now get to Coppers at 6pm and soak up the dance-floor for six whole hours before closing time.

Taking to social media, the Harcourt Street nightclub announced their new opening hours.

On Instagram they wrote: "In light of the government's latest announcement, we are closing our doors at midnight from tomorrow onwards.

"Don't worry though, we'll be opening at 6pm every night of the week."

The caption continued: "We want to keep bringing you the Coppers nights you love, so get down early and get free entry before 8pm."

They reiterated that tickets are required for entry into the club, and that they will be checking Covid-19 vaccination certs and matching ID at the door.

Earlier this week, An Taoiseach Micheál Martin announced that from today onwards, bars, nightclubs and restaurants must close their doors at 12pm.

Members of the public have also been urged to work from home unless absolutely necessary from Friday.

Addressing the nation on Tuesday, the Fianna Fáil leader said that a "collective effort" is needed in order to keep society open and avoid widespread restrictions.

Mr Martin said that Ireland is now seeing a "fourth surge" of the virus and asked the public to continue to fully adhere to Covid regulations, receive their full vaccinations, take the booster shot, work from home, wear masks and be mindful of their environment.

He added that the rising case numbers are "a cause of deep concern" but said that he was aware of the fact that "no one wants to go back to a world of widespread restrictions".

As well as new closing times and working from home, the Cabinet agreed that household close contacts who are fully vaccinated and show no symptoms must restrict their movements for five days until they have three negative antigen test results.
