It's expected the indoor dining regulations will be published this evening.

Restaurants, pubs and cafes allowing indoor dining will have to check customers for Digital Covid Certs and another identification document, under new guidelines.

Businesses will also have to keep customer details for contact tracing.

A meeting between the industry, Government officials and Fáilte Ireland has finished and it's expected the regulations will be published this evening.

A local Senator says the hospitality sector has been reopened in an "intelligent fashion".

He told this morning's Joe Finnegan Show that the Government handled the reopening correctly.
