Non-essential retail would also be shut and restaurants only allowed to operate take-away and delivery services.

    Two different sources familiar with the plan told Reuters that the initial discussions had considered incorporating parts of Levels 4 and 5 of the five-step framework. National broadcaster RTE said schools would remain open under the new Level 5 plan.
