The five-kilometre travel limit has been lifted, with people free to travel within their county or 20 kilometres from their home.

It's one of the Level 5 restrictions being eased, as well as two households being allowed to meet outside - but not in private gardens.

All home building will also resume today.

Non-essential construction works have been closed since January 8th and will start re-opening on a phased basis.

All students will return to schools for the first time in 2021 also today.

The Acting Chief Medical Officer Dr Ronan Glynn says "there are many reasons for hope" as restrictions are eased, and said the remaining measures along with the vaccine are "our way out of the pandemic".

303 new cases of Covid-19 were reported by the Department of Health last night - the lowest daily figure since mid-December, while two more deaths linked to the disease were recorded.

Last night in public hospitals there were 223 people with the virus - down over 10 per cent on last week.
