Ireland removes almost all COVID restrictions

Ireland is to remove almost all COVID restrictions, beginning today, in an announcement by Prime Minister Micheal Martin.

Days after UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson lifted all restrictions, the Emerald Isle is set to return to a semblence of normality following two years of some of the hardest restrictions in Europe.

In a statement on Friday (local time), Martin said Ireland had ‘weathered the Omicron storm,’ despite recordng the second highest Omicron total in Europe for the past week.

Vaccine passes will no longer be required, while hotels, pubs and sporting venues can open at full capacity.

A small number of minor restrictions remain in place, such as the requirement to wear a face mask on public transport and in shops.
