More than half of people coming to Ireland from abroad, who should be self-quarantining for two weeks to avoid possibly passing on Covid-19, are not answering phone calls checking on their whereabouts.

Figures reveal that from the end of May to the middle of June, as overseas holiday traffic increased, officials rang 684 new arrivals who had come here from abroad by plane or boat.
