Covid-19 Information Notice

Please adhere to the advice from Ireland’s Health Service Executive (HSE) to help slow the spread of Covid-19. Please read the guidelines on the HSE website (www.hse.ie) to learn how to protect yourself and others, practice social distancing and the importance of regular hand washing.

Government Recommendations:

The current restrictions are still in place and everyone is urged to stay at home where possible. Staying at home is the best way to minimise the spread of COVID-19 to your friends, families and communities until restrictions begin to ease.  

The Government’s Roadmap for Reopening Society & Business was published on May 18th — it sets out stages for unlocking restrictions in a slow, phased way.  Ireland is now in Phase 3 of the Roadmap for Reopening Society and Business.
