Among communities of West Cork towns there are growing concerns as people make their way to holiday homes and caravan parks this week, despite the 2km radius travel restriction put in place by the government.
Ferry companies who are still operating between the UK and Ireland have advised that passengers should only travel for essential purposes.
Simon Palmer, Communications Manager for Stena Line, which is still operating its ferry service from Fishguard in Wales to Rosslare Harbour in Wexford, said that passenger numbers over the Easter weekend were low.
Speaking to The Echo, he confirmed that a total of 26 passengers are due to arrive into Rosslare on Stena Line ferries over the weekend.
Five passengers are due to travel on Saturday, seven on Sunday and fourteen on Monday.
He said that those passengers who have already travelled to Ireland from Wales were deemed to be taking essential travel.
