Tanaiste Leo Vardakar says they were given stark warnings from NPHET about what may happen if the government went ahead with its original reopening plans.

The re-opening of indoor dining has been delayed until at least the 19th of July.

The number of people at weddings will increase from 25 to 50 on July 5th - and the number of fans at outdoor sporting events will increase from 200 to 500.
