MINISTER FOR FOREIGN Affairs Simon Coveney has advised Irish people travelling abroad to make arrangements to come home “as soon as possible”.  

Due to flight restrictions and cancellations increasing each day in many countries, Coveney said there is “no guarantee that air routes will continue to operate in the coming weeks”. 

“For this reason, where commercial flights are still an option, we recommend that people who wish to do so make arrangements to return to Ireland as soon as possible,” he said. 

We are aware that this is a stressful situation for citizens and our embassy network is working around the clock to provide them with all the information and assistance that we can, bearing in mind the situation is unfolding across multiple countries and is not one under our control.
