Health Minister expecting increase in wedding capacity
The Health Minister is expecting good news for brides and grooms to come out of Cabinet this morning, where Ministers will discuss increasing the numbers allowed to attend weddings.
Indications from Government earlier in the summer suggested 100 would be allowed from August 6th, however Tánaiste Leo Varadkar said recently the change was unlikely to happen.
Discussions are taking place at Cabinet this morning to sign off on the change.
Speaking on his way into the meeting, Minister Stephen Donnelly says he anticipates good news for brides and grooms to be.
“I don’t want to preempt cabinet, but I think we will have good news on weddings today.
“For all those brides out there and dare I say for some grooms out there it is an important day, people have been planning for a long time and a lot of people have put weddings off for a long time.
“I think we should have something positive to say in a few hours time.”
