Local Authorities Told Video Link Council Meetings Cannot Take Place

County and city councils in Wicklow and around the country have been told they cannot meet via video link.

Local authorities had been awaiting legal advice from the government, after concerns were raised that any votes that were carried out on Zoom or Skype may be subject to legal challenge.
Some councils are now looking at the possibility of physically meeting in the next couple of weeks, with either a reduced number of representatives or in a large space, to be able to follow social distancing guidelines.
