Helen

This was such a strange day. As an Irish person, it felt weird to hear NPHET recommending an end to all restrictions. For two years, we had been going into lockdown, reopening with restrictions and then closing down again. The masks, the digital certs, the "substantial meals", the social distancing... All suddenly gone on a random Thursday in January. It felt surreal.
