Government Ministers are to sign off on plans to move to phase three of the easing of Coronavirus restrictions.
The cabinet is holding what will likely be its final meeting in Dublin Castle this evening.
"We got away by the skin of our teeth" says Prof Paddy Mallon on heath service capacity during COVID. He says asking healthcare workers to do what they did again with pre-COVID staffing levels would be like asking the general population to go into lockdown again

Last Decision For Current Government - Maybe.
The last major decision taken by the Ministers of this Fine Gael/Independents government is likely to be moving to the next stage of the easing of lockdown restritions.
From Monday most of the country will be allowed to re-open - including restaurants, PUBS that serve food, cinemas, barbers and hairdressers.
People will also be able to travel anywhere in Ireland without restrictions.
The cabinet is also expected to announce that face masks will become mandatory on public transport.
This is to allow capacity on buses, trains and the Luas to increase to 50 per cent to take account for more people going to work.
There's also to be a discussion on opening air bridges to other countries to allow foreign travel.
This will only be to countries with a good handle on the spread of the Coronavirus.
So it would likely take effect sometime in July.
