Taoiseach Micheál Martin has indicated that restrictions could stay in place until the end of April.
Next week, the Irish government are expected to update the Living with Covid plan, although it seems that very little will change.
Mr Martin has said that the restrictions could stay in place for another nine weeks.
In an interview with the Daily Mirror he suggested that pubs, restaurants and hairdressers may remain closed over that.
During the interview he offered some hope saying the vaccine “was the light at the end of the tunnel” and “will enable a better quality of life”.
