Over 70s and the vulnerable to be given these special reserved times to enjoy public parks from today




Fair is fair. The elderly and vulnerable, who’ve done more than anyone could ask them to do in the fight against covid-19 will finally get a little bit of payback from today.

Those who are over 70 or people who have been cocooning during the Covid-19 outbreak will be given a reserved time in public parks in Dublin from this morning onward.

In a move that will allow the over 70s and those with an underlying condition to exercise, all four Dublin regional councils have agreed to allocate the time from 1:30pm to 3:30pm.

It is understood the reservations will apply to over a 100 green spaces across the city and those under the age of 70 who don’t have an underlying condition are advised to avoid the areas at those times.
