Representation

We represent the publicans of Dublin with key stakeholders in order to actively develop members' strategic business interests.

We do this by uniting the publicans of Dublin in a single organisation, harnessing their collective power and influence, and representing their interests at senior Government, Civil Service, media and supplier levels. This is the essence of the LVA as the licensed trade is so structurally fragmented.

Accordingly, we work closely with the Government and civil service on alcohol policy and taxation, as well as legislative and licensing issues of relevance to our members. Given the highly regulated nature of the licensed trade, this is a critically important function.

We develop close partnerships with our key suppliers to ensure mutual understanding and more profitable business relationships. 

We represent views of Dublin publicans in both local and national media.

Dedicated support services further enhance the benefits of membership.
