The owner of a dance show in Kerry, which is popular with tourists, has called on the Government to speed up the vaccine roll out.
David Rea, one of the owners of Celtic Steps, claims Ireland is falling behind other countries in terms of vaccination rates.
The Irish music and dance show was performed in Killarney and Tralee but no shows have taken place since March because of the pandemic.
Mr Rea, who's also critical of the EU's handling of the vaccine roll out, says we need to open up at the same time as other countries or our economy will suffer.
He says the Government should take its lead from countries like Denmark who are well ahead of us on the vaccine roll out.
