Hairdressers and barbers are set to reopen in May under the government's roadmap for reopening the country.

Its President Danielle Kennedy says they're disappointed that no firm commitment or detail was given.
Towards the end of April, the government will also consider allowing the full reopening of construction, as well as the phased return of non-essential retail.
Retail would first reopen with click and collect services and outdoor businesses such as garden centres.
Ministers were told July is the target for the return of inter-county travel, but some feel that's not ambitious enough and it could happen sooner.
