The government of Ireland is warning its citizens who are in the United Kingdom and elsewhere abroad that ever increasing travel restrictions could make it difficult to return home.

The warning comes as Aer Lingus and Ryan Air greatly curtail the number of flights they operate.

Ireland requires anyone entering the country except from Northern Ireland to restrict their movements for 14 days, including residents.

Irish citizens should “monitor”  news reports and travel options closely, said Simon Coveney, the country’s Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs

“The availability of transport from Great Britain to Ireland is subject to change,” he said in a statement.

Earlier in the week, the country’s Department of Foreign Affairs issued an advisory calling for people to avoid unnecessary travel out of the country through at least March 29. The advisory includes Britain but does not include Northern Ireland.
