    Background: NORTHERN IRELAND

    About twenty pubs opened in Belfast for lunchtime drinks on November 25, but they were deliberately breaking the law as a protest. They say it is unfair that clubs and hotels should be allowed to serve drinks on a Sunday lunchtime whereas they are not. Police moved in swiftly to close the pubs which defied the law and said details were noted on all of them. Drinkers left, but one publican, Gus Allen, did manage to make a statement. While this was going on, Protestant extremist leader Ian Paisley held a rally demanding that licensing laws should be tightened up, not loosened.
