Doubt Cast On Whether Pubs Can Fully Re-Open Next Monday

The full reopening of pubs, and how to limit the number of tourists travelling into this country, will be discussed by public health officials later.

The National Public Health Emergency Team meets this morning, with all licensed premises due to be allowed reopen next Monday, under Phase 4 of the easing of restrictions.
No new Covid-19 deaths have been recorded, while 11 new cases have been confirmed.
However acting Chief Medical Officer Ronan Glynn says it's too early to say if pubs will be given the go-ahead to reopen next week.

Padraic Cribben, from the Vintners Federation of Ireland, is angry about the acting chief medical officer's comments.
He wants urgent clarity about whether pubs can open next week.
