POLL: Do you think the Irish Government handled the pandemic well?

It’s been nineteen months since the Government first imposed restrictions in a bid to stop the spread of Covid-19.

Every Government around the world struggled to deal with the pandemic, attempting to balance lives with people’s livelihoods.


Some nations took a more liberal approach to restrictions, such as the United States, relying on people to take their own precautions, rather than on Government restrictions.

Other nations, such as Ireland, took a more restrictive approach, engaging in several lengthy lockdowns to protect people and the health system.

On October 22nd, the majority of the remaining restrictions are set to ease. The only requirements which will be left is the wearing of face coverings in certain circumstances, such as in shops or on public transport.


Taking all of this into account, do you think the Government handled the Covid-19 pandemic well?
