The restaurants association wants to see movement this evening for their sector.

Cabinet ministers will meet this afternoon to sign off on the widespread easing of Covid restrictions - after NPHET gave the green light yesterday.

It will include the reopening of nightclubs, and the end of a curfew for the hospitality sector.

Covid passes will no longer be needed, except for international travel, and live events and matches can have full attendances.

The timelines will be decided by the government today - but the reopening is likely to begin this weekend.

The Restaurants Association of Ireland is calling for all restrictions on hospitality to be removed today - including the 8pm curfew.

Nightclubs could be allowed reopen tomorrow.
