Ireland brings in new restrictions ahead of Christmas due to ‘very stark’ health advice

Strict new limits on Ireland’s hospitality sector and home visits have been announced by the country’s prime minister.

From Tuesday, 7 December, nightclubs will close until 9 January, and bars will only be allowed to run table service with a maximum of six people per table in both bars and restaurants.

Speaking in a televised address, Micheal Martin said: “The risks associated with proceeding into the Christmas period without some restrictions… is just too high.”

He added that the advice from health officials is “very stark”.
