Update
:

Oh.

This morning.

Dublin Airport arrivals.

From today, visitors arriving in Ireland must fill out a mandatory Passenger Locator Form to ‘help with contact tracing’.

Via RTÉ

Anyone entering the country from abroad must provide details of where they intend to stay for the following 14 days, and they will be asked to self-isolate at that location.

Those who arrive in the Republic of Ireland and travel immediately onwards to the North will only have to fill out their name and signature on the form.

Failure to fill out the form will be punishable by a fine of up to €2,500 or up to six months in prison.

Oh yes.

Playing a blinder.

Yesterday.

In the Dáil.

Independent TD Michael Collins raised the story in yesterday’s Irish Independent about some passengers failing to fill in a form detailing where they would be staying for the following two weeks, saying:

“We see today that a large percentage of people flying into Ireland are not filling in the form asking them how they intend to socially isolate for two weeks. We need to allay any fears in tourism communities, and that can be done if the completion of these forms was mandatory in airports and ports.”

During his response, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said:

“In terms of the airport forms, they are not yet mandatory. They may well need to become mandatory. That is something we are considering at the moment, but I disagree with the Deputy. Making it mandatory for people to fill in forms to self-isolate for 14 days when they come to the country is not good for tourism.

“People will not come to Ireland if they have to isolate for 14 days. We need to get to the point where we can have air travel start again. I want air travel to start again for business and leisure but that will have to be done safely. That is being worked on at the moment.”

Terminal 2 at Dublin Airport

This morning.

Independent.ie reports:

Three people were taken hostage when a bus was hijacked at Dublin Airport in the early hours of this morning.

Independent.ie understands the shuttle bus belonging to a well-known hotel was stolen from the roadway in front of Terminal 2 around 1am.

Two hijackers locked the doors, effectively trapping the passengers already on board, and took off in the direction of the M1 motorway.

A source said the traumatised passengers were eventually allowed out near Julianstown, Co Meath, a 30-minute drive away.
