While public religious services may resume on May 10, they have been prohibited since December 26, 2020. Ireland’s Prime Minister Micheál Martin announced that Ireland’s churches will be permitted to re-open for public worship from May 10, following nearly five consecutive months of forced church closures, with police actively enforcing the unconstitutional ban on the Mass. Speaking to the nation on Thursday, Martin announced the latest measures in the very gradual lifting of the severe lockdown. Worship is currently still forbidden, and has been so since December 26, 2020, following the start of the current national restrictions on December 24. Thus, churches are only open for private prayer, as well as small funerals and weddings.
