Dublin is facing a fresh lockdown with a possible ban ban on social gatherings.
The National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET) are currently discussing putting Dublin into Covid level three, with further added restrictions.
The move follows public health officials recommendations that extra restrictions are put in place across the city to fight the spread of Covid-19.
If the proposals are adopted, travel in and out of the county would be restricted and cafes and restaurants could be forced to close.
The level-three lockdown could see 1.4m people subject to a ban on social gatherings, both indoors or outdoors, with no sports matches or events allowed.
