Some social media users are now claiming that Micheal Martin, Leo Varadkar and Eamon Ryan and purposely leaking information in a desperate attempt to see what sort of response the public would have and possibly will steer their decision making as a result.

As covid cases continue to rise and with the likelihood of them going up even further, discussions are taking place in relation to further restrictions including closing pubs, nightclubs, restaurants and a full lockdown.

It’s understood that the economy will be allowed continue for another week with a full lockdown being discussed for December 20th.
