While expected tax liability should be modest in most cases for recipients of the TWSS &PUP, today's decision welcome nonetheless. We will continue to work to minimise financial hardship, to the greatest extent possible, on taxpayers challenged by #COVID19

I note the decision of the European Commission to lodge an appeal to the CJEU, in the Apple state aid case. The Govt will consider the legal grounds set out in the appeal and consult with the Government’s legal advisors, in responding.

We are in uncertain times. #Budget2021  on Tuesday will aim to reassure our people that a realistic plan is in place & offer comfort that we will do what is needed in meeting the challenges of #Brexit  & #COVID__19  head-on.

I’ll be talking to @PatKennyNT  about #Budget2021  & the new health restrictions announced last night. We all have a part to play in this. Our behaviour must reflect the reality of the situation. We can & we will turn this around #HopeForTheFuture  #ProtectingLivesAndLivelihoods

I am deeply honored to be elected as the new President of the #Eurogroup . I look forward to working with all of my Eurogroup colleagues in the years ahead to ensure a fair and inclusive recovery for all as we meet the challenges ahead with determination

Very significant agreement reached in #Eurogroup . Support available for governments, employers and citizens. It took a few hours to agree, but only because this really matters. Very important step forward.

I’m on the @Luas  on way to work. Big increase in number of passengers wearing face masks. But still not everyone. Please do, we need to stay safe. @ronan_glynn  making the risks clear re travel and safety.

The most unusual evening before #StPatricksDay . But, a greening that did go ahead.

On a bright morning in Dublin airport I’m calling for a yes vote for women who are also traveling today. We can do better. #menforyes 

On Friday, @ReginaDo ⁩ & I announced the extension of the Wage Subsidy Scheme & the Pandemic Unemployment Payment: the aim of which is to help keep more people connected to their employers, keeping them in a job & to support the incomes of those who have lost their jobs

Latest job figures mark highest level of employment ever in Ireland @ 2.26m. Behind each stat is a human story; another pay packet at the end of the week, a jobseeker getting back on his/her feet. Govt will continue to pursue right policies for our people
