Paschal Donoghue states that Covid-19 funding can’t continue indefinitely

The Minster for Finance ‘Paschal Donoghue’ stated that Covid-19 funding will not be able to continue indefinitely.

He stated that the country can afford the change due to the state regaining its credit worthiness over the last decade as well as decisions made by the European Central Bank.

That being said, he made it clear that it will not be sustainable indefinitely.

Mr Donoghue added “In the next number of weeks we will outline a path forward for the subsidy scheme and the Pandemic Unemployment Payment”.
