IRELAND – Ireland has become the second country to end the COVID-19-related restrictions implemented on its people behind England, according to reports.

Irish Prime Minister Micheál Martin addressed the nation on Friday, announcing the end of the restrictions at 6:00am on Saturday. “Humans are social beings and we Irish are more social than most,” the Prime Minister said. “As we look forward to this spring, we need to see each other again. We need to see each other smile. We need to sing again.

“As we navigate this new phase of COVID, it is time to be ourselves again.”

Martin added that trust in the government is a “precious and powerful,” yet “fragile,” and requires “confidence that the government will do what is needed in an emergency [and knowing] their government will not impose restrictions on their personal freedoms for any longer than is necessary.”

Proof of Covid vaccination is no longer required in the country to enter establishments such as theaters, restaurants, and gyms. Group sizes and distances will also no longer be monitored, and the 8:00pm curfew will be lifted.

Mask mandates will still be in effect in many places, however, such as schools, public transportation, and indoor public spaces. People are also “strongly encouraged” to receive a Covid-19 shot.
