Taoiseach Micheál Martin speaking today on national radio has said that the hospitality industry in Ireland will not reopen before mid-summer.
Martin said that he as well as government and public health officials are particularly concerned about the emergence of new variants, adding that current Covid numbers are far too high.
During an interview he said: “While I am happy that we are making progress with the vaccination programme, any easing of the restrictions has to be slow and cautious because of the threat from new variants of the disease.”
In reply to the Taoiseach, Adrian Cummins, CEO of the Restaurants Association of Ireland issued a statement saying that restaurants and hospitality businesses will now be “closer to financial ruin and meltdown”.
