The wider reopening of pubs from coronavirus restrictions later in the month is at risk over concerns about social distancing outside bars.
Taoiseach Micheál Martin said the Government was unhappy about incidents at some locations over the weekend and warned plans for the next phase of reopening remained "under review".
Pubs that sell food were allowed to reopen last week but the remainder of licensed premises can't reopen until phase four of the Government's 'roadmap' due to begin on the same date, July 20.
Major concern has been sparked by videos that emerged on social media over the weekend showing hundreds of young people congregating to drink on Dame Lane in Dublin city centre.
