Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe is restricting his movements after his French counterpart tested positive for COVID-19.

Minister Donohoe and France's Bruno Le Maire were among those who attended a Eurogroup meeting in Berlin on September 11th.

Since Germany wasn't on the travel green list at the time of the meeting, Minister Donohoe had been restricting his movements since arriving back in Ireland.

He was tested after returning to Ireland and tested again over the weekend, with both tests negative.

However, Mr Le Maire tested positive for coronavirus last Friday - a week after the Eurogroup meeting.

In a statement, the Department of Finance said: "Minister Donohoe was instructed to further restrict movements for another seven days (up until this coming Friday) which he is doing.

"All of his meetings this week have been moved online, similar to how he conducted business throughout the course of last week."
