The measures were due to be implemented on Friday, but were delayed by Government.

Anyone arriving into the Republic of Ireland from overseas will now need proof of a negative Covid test.

It must be a professionally taken antigen or PCR test, and came into effect yesterday.

Meanwhile, passengers arriving into Northern Ireland from abroad will be required to take a pre-departure Covid test from 4 o'clock tomorrow morning.
