The Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection have a range of measures to provide income support to people affected by Coronavirus, viewable here.  They advise that the best method to apply for COVID Pandemic Unemployment Payment is online.

You will need to have a basic MyGovID account to proceed (which they reassure is a simple process).  If you want some help with filling out the online form, do contact us.

South Kerry Local Employment Service is your free support for all things relating to finding jobs or work.
