Absolutely Massive News For Irish Fans Ahead Of The Six Nations That Will Delight Everyone

The Irish Government will today approve the lifting of almost all COVID-19 restrictions, with the exact timetable to be agreed by Coalition leaders in advance of a special Cabinet meeting this afternoon.

The lifting of restrictions means pubs and restaurants will no longer have to close at 8pm, but more importantly, it means Ireland will be at full capacity in the Aviva Stadium for all three of their home games in the Six Nations.

Stadiums are limited to 5,000 capacity under current guidelines but it’s set to be all systems go for Rugby’s Greatest Championship. The income will also come as a much-needed boost for the IRFU, who have lost out huge sums of money in recent years as a result of the pandemic.

Andy Farrell’s side begin their 2022 Six Nations campaign with a home game against Wales on February 5th, before a trip to Paris to take on France the following week.
