The decision to not allow casual trading on Bettystown beach for the 2020 summer season, “will have a devastating effect on our business in an already very challenging year,” said Caroline Smith of Smiths Ice Cream Picture: Ciara Wilkinson

Coronavirus and social distancing requirements have spelt the end of an ice-cream bought on the beach at Bettystown Co Meath for Summer 2020.

The decision not to allow casual trading is on foot of a decision not to allow cars and other general vehicles onto the beach, “at least until social distancing is no longer advised by public health officials,” according to the council.
