Pub -goers caught on camera sharing a bottle of alcohol in a packed boozer have sparked outrage during the coronavirus pandemic.

Footage of a busy bar in Dublin has provoked anger in Ireland – with individuals appearing to down drink straight from the same bottle.

The Berlin D2 bar in Dame Street has been accused by members of the public of promoting “disgraceful” activities and for ignoring social distancing.

Video went viral on Saturday as a punter shared footage of someone wearing a mask pouring drink into the willing open mouths of numerous men as loud music boomed over the crowd.

The raucous scenes are said to have taken place just hours before the National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET) announced 200 more coronavirus cases in Ireland.

With concerns of a second spike of the deadly Covid-19 virus, locals have been left dismayed and angered by the footage which showed punters not wearing masks singing, dancing and drinking away.

The Irish Mirror reports a Twitter user claimed to have filmed the debauchery and left the scene in disgust after catching the wild behaviour on camera.

He told the publication: "Honestly at the beginning, it was very quiet, from 3pm to 4pm.

"But the atmosphere started to be crazy, so we decided to leave with my wife when the situation [went] mad.

"Yes, some food was served.

"Honestly I don't know the number of people but all the tables were full.

"We left because we disagreed with the situation (no social distancing) and I was scared for our safety about Covid, so we preferred to leave this bar and never come back, ever."

Ireland’s Health Minister Stephen Donnelly took to Twitter to slam the activity, writing: "The vast majority of Irish people have sacrificed a huge amount to help suppress this virus. They’ve shown huge solidarity.

“People are rightly sickened by these scenes.

"The reckless actions of a small few can have huge repercussions on everyone else.”

The Licensed Vintners Association has hit out at the premises too.

A spokesman said: "This is outrageous and appalling. That business should be shut down immediately. It is not a pub and does not hold a pub licence.

"Clear need for inspections across the hospitality sector to ensure compliance with guidelines & licensing conditions."
