The government is examining the return of international travel in July as part of the EU green pass system.

While no firm dates have been set the measure will be considered next month if the wider easing of restrictions goes well.

A pilot programme for large sporting events and gigs is also set to be trialled over the summer.

The government is preparing to host trial events to see how they can be safely managed before everyone is vaccinated.

The new plan for easing restrictions also suggests nightclubs could return towards the end of the year.

Meanwhile, the number of Covid-19 patients in public hospitals has dropped by 10 percent in just 24 hours.

It fell to 136 last night - 15 fewer than the previous night and the lowest in almost seven months.

There are 44 patients in intensive care with the virus - the lowest this year.

474 new cases and three deaths were confirmed yesterday.
