Ireland - Country Profile on the European Semester and COVID-19 crisis

The government’s support to families and children during the crisis was adequate. It extended the school meals programme when the schools shut, so that children would not go hungry. There has been a big focus on reopening early years settings for all children, in particular those from vulnerable groups and for children of frontline workers. Whilst this proved to be challenging, most of the country’s early years settings opened on 29 June 2020.
