The Health Minister has played down the impact of foreign travel on the spread of the coronavirus following the news Ireland won't be moving to phase four next week.
The reproductive rate of the virus has now increased to between 1.2 and 1.8 forcing the next step in the roadmap to be delayed until August 10th.
It means pubs, nightclubs and casinos can't re-open and restrictions on public gatherings remain in place.
Face-coverings in all shops will become mandatory and no more than 10 people can attend social gatherings in a house.
A 'green list' for international travel will be published on Monday and Health Minister Stephen Donnelly has played down the impact of tourists on the spread of the virus;
"Nine in every 10 new cases is domestic so nearly nine in every ten cases is being addressed through these measures. Since the beginning of June the total number of cases identified, that are people who have come off flights from the United States, is just four."
Padraig Cribben, chief executive of the Vintners Federation of Ireland, says the delay to reopening all pubs is 'absolutely shocking'.
He says publicans will now need extra funding from the government to prevent them closing for good.
Gatherings of up 100 people indoors and 500 outdoors now won't be allowed until August 10th.
The current limits of 50 and 200 respectively will apply until then. Weddings will be among the events affected by the delay.
The Irish Hotels Federation says it's a big blow to the hospitality sector.
