Shops that sell children's shoes will soon be allowed to reopen.

The government is finalising the plans following requests from parents and medical professionals across the country.

Parents will have to make appointments to have their child's feet measured, or to buy shoes.

Speaking in the Dail, Taoiseach Micheal Martin acknowledged that there have been issues around the matter.

He said shoes were an essential item in terms of the growth and development of children.

Taoiseach Micheal Martin told the Dail "We are finalising specific guidance. This will be published and will be outlined in the regulations."

He said this would allow shoe shops and fitting services "to measure children and to provide for children on appointment - online or by phone call".

The Taoiseach said this will be "very specific to children".
