Stephen Donnelly is due to address the Dáil on the issue of NPHET's level 5 recommendation.
Taoiseach Micheál Martin insisted this afternoon that he has full confidence in the Health Minister, and that he had not leaked the information about NPHET's recommendation on Sunday.
But is the Taoiseach's confidence well placed? Is Stephen Donnelly up to the job?
Daniel McConnell, political editor of the Irish Examiner, Róisín Shortall, joint leader of the Social Democrats, and Duncan Graham, director of Retail Excellence Ireland, joined us to discuss this and how COVID-19 restrictions are likely to impact on Christmas.
