The rates of Covid 19 in some parts of Dublin are now up to three times the national average.

Nationally, there have been 53 cases per 100 thousand people over the last two weeks.

But it's 122 in Dublin South East, covering the likes of Ranelagh, Donnybrook, Dundrum and Sandyford.

The incidence rate is 152 in Dublin North West - which takes in Blanchardstown, Castleknock and Finglas.

Localised Restrictions

Tanaiste Leo Varadkar says localised restrictions within Dublin is something the government's looked at - but it would be tricky to implement:

"It's possible. We actually looked at that in relation to Kildare.

"Looking at Dublin now it's high all over the county.

"There's only one area where it's low, near the national average - the area stretching from Blackrock along the coast to Shankill and Loughlinstown and to Bray.

"That would be the only area you could consider excluding."
