    I have a small construction business with a number of residential projects currenly on hold. Under the planned changes to Covid restrictions due to come into effect on 12th April will I be permitted to travel to other parts of the country to collect building materials.

    The only changes to travel are to extend it to the full county or 20km if venturing into a different county

    If your business is allowed to operate it need materials to do so. Hence I can only conclude going to get supplies for a business that is allowed to operate constitutes "essential" travel

    If though you travel half way across the country to pick up materials that are readily available locally you may be more susceptible to challenge, but I presume that is not the intention here

    I need to collect some doors for a project, they were custom built and have been sitting with the manufacturer, 120 miles away, since January.

    If it's for a building project I would think you have a valid reason to travel

    Ultimately though that's not for me to determine, and indeed if you are questioned it may not be for you to either. I personally would be very surprised if you were turned back on such a journey

    Just to add, I've had to travel from the South Coast to Dublin numerous times in various levels of lockdown for medical appointments. I have not been stopped and questioned once on all those 300km+ (7 or 8 of them off the top of my head) return journeys

    Do we know roughly when hotels will open back to Non essential workers in Ireland.

    Given how tentative they are to open things, I would say 1st Aug or more likely 1st Sept (when summer hols are over)

    Does a yone know when we might be able to book holidays? Should we be open by early June?

    Never for me. I'm not going to support businesses that rip me off.

    If I had to book it, the earliest I'd be thinking would be mid July, they are taking the shackles off far too slowly.

    Don't know if this thread is still current, but does anyone know what the limits are for the number of people gathering outdoors from the 7th of June? I'm not talking about group bookings in a restaurant or pub which I know to be 6, but say a group of friends / family from a number of different households.
