Speaking to RedFM News, Adrian O'Herlihy from Carrigaline Business Association says the continued roll out of vaccines is giving businesses increased confidence:

"Most people are positive. They've had a hard year, but they're looking forward to getting back up and going. And what we've to be positive about is people getting their vaccines and the role-out. Everybody would love it to be instant and be done within weeks but, in practical terms, we've had to take a certain length of time and hopefully we'll be down to the lower age groups during the summer."
