In the Dáil.
Taoiseach Leo Varadkar begins the debate on the latest emergency legislation as a consequence of the coronavirus.
The Dáil sitting, involving a severely reduced number of TDs, is scheduled to sit for 12 hours.

👏🏻 The Dáil has agreed to interrupt its business at 8pm – irrespective of whatever item of business is being conducted at that time – to join in a national moment of applause for frontline workers at the vanguard of Ireland’s #CoVID19 response.
