Kildare, Laois and Offaly have had almost half of the country's COVID-19 cases between them over the past fortnight.

It's now being reported that NPHET has recommended the introduction of localised restrictions in these three counties.

This would include the closure of cafés, restaurants, pubs, cinemas, gyms, theatres and museums as well as a ban on sporting events and non-essential travel, and the limiting of outdoor gatherings.
