They have also suggested proof of vaccination is not necessary.
This story appears to be being buried online currently… But you can still find it.

Via RTE news:
The Taoiseach said the current 8pm closing time for the hospitality sector is in place until the end of the month, but said he thinks people can “look forward to an earlier lifting of restrictions.”
However, he warned there are some elements of Covid-19 measures that may be kept, adding that there “could be another chapter and we need to be vigilant and mindful of that.”
Mr Martin said mask wearing will be an important feature and said he thinks that public health advice will maintain that.
He said the booster campaign will continue until April because so many who were infected with Omicron were unable to get the booster.
