Here are the Covid-19 restrictions which will be implemented over the next month

An Taoiseach Micheál Martin addressed the Irish people yesterday following a Cabinet meeting, which discussed advice from the National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET).

Up to 50 guests will be allowed attend wedding receptions from July 5th.

However, communions and confirmations will not be proceeding.

Outdoor events

There will also be no change to the plans surrounding outdoor events.

Up to 200 people will be able to attend most outdoor events.

Events with a capacity of over 5,000 will be able to allow 500 people attend.

International travel

As of 19 July, the EU Digital Covid Certificate will be operational in Ireland.

However, people are still being told to avoid non-essential travel.
