In a submission by the local authority for a review of gambling law reform, Dublin City Council has told the Irish government it is opposed to the opening of casinos anywhere in the capital.

The council stated that it was ‘opposed to any review of gambling laws that extends gambling beyond what is available at present’.

It did not want to see any new gaming arcades or casinos within its jurisdiction, and said it believed that gambling was dangerously addictive.

Ireland’s Department of Justice is in the process of examining what effects the widespread legislative reform of its gambling sector could have.

Casinos are illegal under the country’s current gaming legislation, but the operation of private members’ card clubs and other casino-style venues is not prohibited.

Dublin City Council was established a special cross-party subgroup to consider the terms of the review, which was established under the auspices of Ireland’s previous government.
