Numbers allowed at funerals increased from 10 to 25

The number of people permitted to attend funerals has been increased from 10 to 25.

It comes after confirmation last night that up to 25 people could gather for a wedding.

Minister of State for Health and Well-being and Sligo/Leitrim TD Frank Feighan says he hopes the increase in numbers permitted at funerals during the Level 5 restrictions will provide some small comfort to those who lose a loved one during this difficult time.
