    I was just reading through this article and had a few thoughts. According to the article there is an 11PM curfew in Dublin that could effect Aldo vs Mcgregor if it were to be held there.

    First of all I never knew city-wide curfews were a thing. In some U.S. cities there are curfews for minors but it seems absurd to go any farther than that. Is this common in Ireland? or Europe in general? It seems like it would create problems for any event held there.

    What do you guys think about this?

    EDIT: the curfew only applies to the stadium... sorry guys

    I don't think so.

    It would just mean that they would start their main card at 7 P.M Dublin time, which would be 3 P.M in New York time and 12 P.M Vegas time.

    What's your opinion on curfews in general. To me it seems weird but I do live in Vegas so

    I think, although I don't know and haven't googled it, that the curfew may only apply Croke Park- The stadium in question

    I agree but I'm not sure they'll have a choice

    That curfew can be extended to 12 am but no later in special cases.It sucks because that would make the chances of McGregor fighting in Dublin worse.Would people still buy this PPV if it was on much earlier?

    The curfew is because Croke Park was built 130 years ago and is now surrounded by residential housing. Noise laws come into effect at 11:00 and the residents association can easily have any event canceled if it runs after that.

    Just google Garth Brooks Croke Park and you'll get the idea.

    It'll be a stadium specific noise type curfew.

    I can assure you Dublin is alive and kicking in the wee hours of the morning.
