There have been four more deaths in Ireland from the coronavirus.

The latest figures show there are also 88 new cases of the virus.

This brings the overall death toll to 1,547 - while the number of cases stands at 24,200.

It comes on the first day of the easing of restrictions here.

Outdoor workers - including constructions workers, landscapers and gardeners - have returned to work with hardware stores, DIY shops and garden centres re-opening their doors.

Car and bike repair shops have also re-opening, alongside IT and phone shops, office suppliers, electrical stores and a number of others.

Optometrists and hearing aid testing service have also been given the green light.

But the Government says  people should only visit the newly re-opened shops for essential supplies.

Meanwhile the total death toll in the UK stands at 34,796 - still the highest in Europe.
