The Taoiseach has suggested the majority of Level 5 restrictions will be extended into the middle of May.

Micheál Martin has told the Dáil the lockdown measures will be reviewed a week before April 5th and new measures put in place for a further six weeks.

It’s expected construction of homes will be allowed to resume, the 5km travel restrictions will be lifted and some small outdoor gatherings will be allowed.

However, the Taoiseach has warned people not too expect many other measures to be lifted.

Micheál Martin has warned Ireland can’t let its guard down quickly, saying any easing of lockdown next month will be modest.
