How far can you go?

Covid-19 movement restrictions in Ireland could be eased further from next week with a new 20 km rule coming into operation.

If the Government gives the green light to the change from 5 km to 20 km, a website called KM from home developed by Devhaus in Wexford can help plan how far you can travel.

The site is very easy to use and is available here

For example, if you live in Kildare town, you can visit friends or family as far as Monasterevin, Naas, Sallins, Newbridge, Prosperous, Kilcullen or Athy.

If you live in Naas or Sallins, the 20km limit will safely take in Blessington, Ballymore Eustace and Maynooth as well as parts of west Dublin.

David Bolger developed the 2kmfromhome site in late March with its use expanded since.

It has been used 6.2 million times since by more than 2 million people.
