Cancellation of parades will cost publicans – Claim

 

 

Three more cases of coronavirus have been confirmed in the Republic, bringing the total to 24.

Two of the cases are in the south, and one in the west.

All are women who were in close contact with a confirmed case - one of the cases in the south is also a healthcare worker.

There are 12 cases in Northern Ireland.

Meanwhile the Vintners' Federation of Ireland claims the cancellation of the St Patrick's Day parades will cost publicans up to 100 million euro.

Public affairs manager Brian Foley says the government must compensate them.
