At the half-year point, the economic outlook is more positive as normality begins to return to everyday life. After an initial slow start, Ireland’s vaccine rollout has gained momentum with over four million vaccines administered and 50% of the adult population now fully vaccinated.
The acceleration in the vaccine roll-out, coupled with a high take-up and low levels of hospitalisations has enabled the Government to commence a phased re-opening of the Irish economy. Construction sites are now fully operational, retail and hospitality are now open, with social distancing restrictions. A resumption of international travel within the European Union is set to begin on 19 July for Irish residents.
