Chairman of the Cork branch of the Irish Winegrowers’ Federation, Michael O’Donovan of the Castle Inn on South Main St, said such threats were received by him and other Cork tax collectors during the last week.
And those who criticize the introduction of vaccination certificates have accused publicists of “promoting apartheid and discrimination,” O’Donovan said.
He said he stopped posting updates on his company’s Twitter page due to the abuse.
Harp Bar manager in Ballyphehane, Michael Counihan, said that although the company “follows the law as best we can”, online abuse has been directed against the bar.
And he said: “Comments have come from Dublin, Tyrone, Galway, for example. They talked about discrimination because we follow the guidelines. “
He said hate mail was also received at the bar.
