The Government intends to hold an inquiry into the Covid-19 pandemic before the next general election, Taoiseach Simon Harris has said.

Mr Harris has said the terms of reference will be published within the next few weeks. His comments came as a new report estimated that Ireland experienced around 1,100 excess deaths during the pandemic years of 2020 and 2021.

The report, from the Society of Actuaries in Ireland, said Government restrictions stand out as one potentially significant factor for lower excess deaths in 2020. "The Government has made it clear, the three parties in Government and our Programme for Government in terms of a review in relation to the pandemic, I think that's a sensible thing to do," Mr Harris said.
