All non-essential retail is closed, with pubs, restaurants, and cafes restricted to take-away only.

Schools, creches, and construction remain open.

Garda Commissioner Drew Harris said: “The public health advice is clear. This will help save lives.”

“In particular, we would ask people to think about their journeys and not exercise or travel outside the 5km limit unless it meets the essential criteria.”
