The Taoiseach and Tánaiste have suggested that the majority of Level 5 restrictions will remain in place until the middle of May.

Micheál Martin told the Dáil yesterday that lockdown measures will be reviewed a week before 5 April, and then the government will decide what they believe is the best way forward for the following six weeks.

This morning Leo Varadkar said restrictions around retail and other personal services will likely remain into May.

To discuss this we were joined by Tadhg Daly, chief executive of Nursing Homes Ireland, Sean Fleming, Minister of State for Financial Services, Lisa Eccles of Zinc Hair and Beauty in Kilmainham and Vice-President of the Irish Hairdressers Federation, Anita Murray, co-founder of the Irish Spa Association and Duncan Graham, managing director of Retail Excellence Ireland.
