Welcome to the Dublin Live LIVE lock updates blog.

Today is a very important day for the country, as Taoiseach Micheal Martin prepares to deliver a national public speech confirming the easing of new restrictions.

Indoor pints, gyms, movie theaters and more were debated during yesterday’s crisp subgroup meetings and this is what Dublin Live found out.

The ministers are scheduled to approve “100%” the return of pints and eat inside starting July 5.

A special cabinet subcommittee on Covid met last night to discuss the latest shutdown restrictions for the remainder of the summer, and there was good news for the hospitality sector.

Dublin Live was eager to know when we might see a return to indoor drinking and dining, and if July 5 was the date we could look forward to.

They also gave the green light to proceed with the reopening of hotels, B & Bs and guesthouses starting June 2.

A high-level government source responded to this query: “Yes, 100%, in full, we are ready to start with July 5 for interiors.”

However, it looks like sun worshipers will have to wait a bit longer, until this afternoon, before a definitive date is announced on when we can go flying for the overseas holidays.

This was one of the sticking points in last night’s special meeting, in the hope that a date could be announced in the first half of July.

The sport and concerts are also set for a comeback in the coming months after pilot concerts and matches were agreed last night with crowds of hundreds to thousands between June and August.

Alfresco dining will also resume starting June 7, but it will be just under a month before a meal and pint can be served indoors.

Gyms and cinemas may also reopen on this date.

The Cabinet subcommittee on Covid-19 heard NPHET’s recommendations last night and Medical Director Dr. Tony Holohan expressed concern about the threat from the Indian variant, as well as the fact that there are still millions of people still they have not been vaccinated.

However, his general mood was “positive and optimistic”, which one cabinet minister said was “not really expected”.

An additional meeting of the three government leaders, Taoiseach Micheál Martin, Tánaiste Leo Varadkar and the green leader, Eamon Ryan, is scheduled for Friday morning before the main Cabinet meeting at 12 noon to approve all the proposals.

Thursday night’s special subcommittee included top members of the government, including Taoiseach Micheál Martin, Tánaiste Leo Varadkar, Minister of Finance, Paschal Donohoe, Minister of Public Expenditure, Michael McGrath, Minister of Health, Stephen Donnelly and Minister of Justice, Heather Humphreys.
