Outdoor gatherings of up to 100 people will be allowed in June

International travel for holidays is set to return on July 19th under plans going to cabinet this afternoon.

Outdoor gatherings of up to 100 people will be allowed in June, or up to 200 in very large venues.

Our Political Correspondent Seán Defoe reports:

NPHET has also cleared the way for indoor dining to return from July 5th.

But Minister of State for Disabilities, Anne Rabbitte, is calling on her government colleagues to bring that forward.

Vintners Federation of Ireland Chief Executive, Padraig Cribben is unhappy pubs may not reopen for indoor dining earlier than July 5th:



The proposals for August would allow 100 people at most indoor events, like concerts, or 200 in larger venues.

But legendary singer Paddy Cole says that's not viable for entertainers.
