Micheál Martin said the Government is very concerned about the plans to fully ease restrictions in England.
From July 19th the vast majority of the Covid restrictions there will be lifted in what’s being dubbed “freedom day”.
But Taoiseach Micheál Martin believes that’s not the way Ireland should go:
“I do think in respect to the UK, I am concerned about the free for all that seems to be developing within the UK, and that does raise issues for us as a people and as a country, because we’re next door neighbours. And what happens in the UK can spill over fairly quickly. And our public health advice is that, that tis not the way to go.”
