Keeping Ahead of Covid-19

Ireland is now in Phase 3 of the government’s road-map for reopening society and business. Most businesses, services and cultural activities have now re-opened. You are now also allowed to travel throughout the country. With the reopening of society, it is important to remember that Covid-19 is a highly infectious disease.
