We are now in unprecedented times, and the economic impact of Covid-19 on Ireland and the rest of the world will be massive, but there are measures we can take to mitigate the fallout. We urge the Irish government to take action to protect the Irish people in the same manner that their Italian counterparts did on March 10th, they suspended mortgage repayments and utility bills to soften the economic blow to households and small businesses, residential and commercial.

Italian prime minister Giuseppe Conte said 'Europe cannot think of confronting an extraordinary situation with ordinary measures'

The coronavirus is expanding rapidly and we will be likely facing numerous months of self isolation with a large number of the country facing unemployment and uncertainty.

Hundreds of small and medium businesses are unlikely to reopen with their current liabilities in place, the aftermath of which will be catastrophic and will impact all of society in Ireland. We call on the government to bring in emergency legislation for banks to freeze mortgages so landlords can freeze rents. By acting together, we can save many lives and livelihoods.

1 - The government needs to liaise with banks to freeze repayments for the duration of coronavirus

2 - Landlords need to implement this for all tenants in Ireland
