Due to the pandemic;

Ireland students are required to keep a 14 days restriction period, during this time, health officials might be coming to cheek up on each student, a fine of  €2500 will be melted out if found defaulting. “The government’s advice.. anyone coming into the island whether it’s for essential or non-essential reasons should – not quarantine – but restrict their movements for 14 days. That’s staying at home, and only going out for essential supplies and for exercise. I see the terms ‘quarantine’ and ‘self isolate’ used incorrectly and regularly. The advice is to restrict your movements for 14 days and that’s for anyone coming into the island”
