We’ll find out later what further restrictions will be imposed here to tackle the spread of the coronavirus.

Schools are likely to stay closed for longer with restrictions on non-essential work and social activity.

Cabinet is meeting to discuss the recommendations from the National Public Health Emergency Team.

Meanwhile, a multi-billion euro social welfare package is among the emergency measures going before ministers today.

It will aim to subsidise the income of people who have lost work because of the Coronavirus up to somewhere around 75 per cent of their income.

Cabinet will also approve measures to protect renters - including a rent freeze and an evictions ban.

Meanwhile, Fianna Fáil says any social welfare increases should focus on people who are self-employed.
