Efforts Continue To Revive Electric Picnic Next Month

The Cabinet sub-Committee on Covid-19 meet today to discuss the detailed of a plan to end restrictions.

It's due to be published on Tuesday and should include details on reopening the live events sector as well as guidance on the return to offices.
Passenger numbers on public transport are due to be restored to full capacity next week.

Meanwhile work is continuing aimed at staging Electric Picnic next month, with pleas from the live events sector for the Government to show support for the industry.
Some senior ministers are believed to be supporting the idea of holding the event in Laois at the end of September, despite Laois County Council refusing permission.
A number of options are being looked at including only allowing vaccinated people into the festival, and designating it as a pilot event.
