Information relayed from the Fundamental Rights Agency (May 2020):

On 22 April, eight human rights NGOs in Ireland wrote a letter to the Taoiseach (prime minister) acknowledging the ongoing need for some restrictions on our rights during the pandemic, but expressing concern that ‘some communities are suffering more than others’ and calling for a human rights impact assessment of the restrictions, and provision of disaggregated data on the basis of nationality, ethnicity, disability, gender and age with regard to those affected by Covid-19, and those arrested under the Emergency Health Regulations.
