The Irish government has agreed to lift almost all coronavirus restrictions from tomorrow – in a move attributed to the passing of the peak of the Omicron wave, and the country’s high vaccine uptake.

The landmark decision was announced by Taoiseach (Prime Minister) Micheal Martin in a televised address to the nation.

“Today is a good day,” he said.

From this weekend, Irish pubs, restaurants and other hospitality outlets can return to normal operations, and customers will not be asked for their digital COVID pass.

Currently, a valid pass must be shown, and hospitality must close at 8pm.

The requirements for social distancing will also be dropped.

Spectator limits at outdoor and indoor events will be lifted.
