PressUp claims €20m in losses over Covid restrictions

LONDON: One of the country’s biggest leisure and hospitality groups has claimed in a High Court action against the Government it could suffer losses of more than €20m if the current Covid-19 lockdown measures continue until year end.

Press Up Ltd, which runs 55 businesses including five hotels, 11 bars, 37 restaurants and two cinemas, says it is entitled to an indemnity or compensation from the State for the losses.

It is also seeking declarations against the Minister for Health, Minister for Finance and the State that the lockdown is unconstitutional and a disproportionate interference with its property rights.
