A spokesperson for the Taoiseach says he adhered to public health guidance while visiting Dublin's Phoenix Park yesterday.

Photos, which have appeared on social media, show Leo Varadkar and his partner meeting two other people.

In a statement, a spokesperson for Leo Varadkar says he was in the Phoenix Park on Sunday afternoon with his partner Matt and two friends in line with public health guidance.

The spokesperson says the Taoiseach was within 5km of Stewards Lodge where he has been staying during the COVID-19 emergency.

He’s been staying at the Lodge, which is in the Farmleigh Estate in the park, for the past few weeks as it has a secure office and video conferencing facilities.

The spokesperson concludes that like previous Taoisigh, the Taoiseach pays a nightly fee to use the facility.
