The Dáil has passed the legislation aimed at allowing indoor dining for fully vaccinated people or those who’ve recovered from COVID-19.
There were no Government rebels on the vote and it was voted through by 74 votes to 68.
Just one non-government TD - independent Michael Lowry - voted in favour, with all other opposition parties and independents voting against it.
It will now go to the Seanad and if it passes there, bars, cafes and restaurants look set to resume indoor service no later than July 26th.
People Before Profit TD Paul Murphy is against the Government's plans.
He said: "They're putting publicans and those who work in pubs - largely people who aren't vaccinated - in an extremely uncomfortable position."
Tánaiste Leo Varadkar told his parliamentary party meeting yesterday evening the rules around indoor dining, if passed, will be reviewed in September.
