Irish MEPs Seek Alternative On Travel Rules For Their Work

Three Irish MEPs are trying to get Covid 19 travel rules relaxed, to make it easier for them to travel between Ireland, Brussels and Strasbourg

MEPS Ciaran Cuffe, Billy Kelleher and Sean Kelly have written to the Government.
They want to take Covid 19 tests instead of self-isolating for two weeks and say they need to attend the European Parliament in person, and being in quarantine when at home in Ireland would restrict their activities.

It comes after Phil Hogan quit his role as EU Commissioner due to the golf gate controversy - partly because he broke coronavirus travel rules.
