ⓘ COVID-19 pandemic in the Republic of Ireland

On 12 March 2020, the government shut all schools, colleges, childcare facilities and cultural institutions. St Patricks Day festivals and events were cancelled. Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar addressed the nation that night. On 24 March, almost all businesses, venues, facilities and amenities were shut; but gatherings of up to four were allowed.

Three days later, the government banned all "non-essential" travel. People were made to keep apart in public.
