New Covid-19 restrictions have come into place overnight in Dublin.

People are not allowed to enter or leave the county unless it is for work, education or other essential reasons.

The county is on Level Three restrictions which mean bars and restaurants cannot serve food indoors, with many having to close last night.

No more than six people from one household can visit your home, all indoor gatherings are banned and organised outdoor gatherings limited to 15 people.
