Green Party Leader and Minister of Transport Ryan said the Government would be able to give “advance notice” so businesses can prepare for the lifting of the measures.

Speaking on RTE’s Morning Ireland, Minister Ryan said: “It will be next week, by the end of next week, I expect to see the restrictions start to be lifted.”

Tomorrow, National public health emergency group will provide their advice on the latest things Covid-19 data and relax measures.

Minister Ryan said the Omicron variant had followed the expected route – with a rapid increase and a rapid decrease in the number of cases.


Ryan said: “We have to be careful with Covid, it’s constantly changing, nothing is certain.

“But certainly our position is a lot better now than it was a few weeks ago.

“The numbers in the ICU have held up, the virulence of the virus, the health consequences, while for some are so significant, no one should take lightly, no one should take the seriousness of the disease lightly. with some people.

“But the previous variants didn’t come in the same numbers. That looks like it would give us an opportunity to start lifting restrictions quickly, very broadly in my mind, and then final restrictions, hopefully the virus won’t change as it did in that kind of time frame.”

And Health Secretary Stephen Donnelly confirmed to Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan on Monday that Ireland has over the top of Omicron waves.

Ryan said he expected the Cabinet subcommittee to meet on Friday, with a full Cabinet meeting early next week.

“We’re going to give people a few days’ notice, so people can be ready, when we start lifting some of the restrictions,” he said.


He added that he did not think any restrictions would be lifted during this weekend.

Yesterday’s Tanaiste Leo Varadkar told a meeting of his parliamentary party that the Government should establish March 31 as a deadlinee to end almost all legal restrictions.

Commenting on this, Minister Ryan said Varadkar’s prediction “makes sense” because under current law most measures will expire at the end of March.

Ryan said he believes the most important thing is to bring about social inclusion in the reception, sporting and cultural events and return to the office.

He urged anyone who hasn’t had a booster shot to take advantage of the shot to protect themselves, others and the reopening process.

The Green Party leader said: “If I were to give a message today, I think a lot of young people, a large percentage would not have used this reinforcement method. I encourage them to do so. for their own health. more broadly, the health of the country.”
