An Taoiseach Mr Micheál Martin, addressing the Fianna Fáil parliamentary party last night, has not ruled out the the fact that restaurants may remain shut until May of this year or indeed even longer.

The Taoiseach has stated that coronavirus transmission numbers remain to high and retail sectors are likely to remain shut until the end of February at least, adding that it will be well into next month before the majority of Covid restrictions are relaxed.

Mr Martin further confirmed that the persons aged over-70, will be in line to receive vaccines by March of this year.

Speaking in relation to the ban on travel; the Taoiseach stated that the best advice was not to travel in or out of the country. The difficulty however is people flying into Belfast.

Speaking to his party’s TD’s, Senators and MEP’s he highlighted that the recent increase in deaths from Covid-19 shows the devastation that this virus now causes, and asserted that Ireland still had some distance to go in dealing with this killer pandemic.
