    Last week on Lunchtime Live here on Newstalk, we had a number of women contact us who were waiting for an appointment for Breast Check.  
    They were told that their appointments couldn’t be facilitated due to the Level 5 Covid-19 restrictions in Ireland, at the movement. 
    Clinical Director of the Breast Check programme, Prof Ann O’Doherty joined Andrea on the show.

    ''Why Cant They Give us a Roadmap?''

    ''Why Cant They Give us a Roadmap?''

    Level Five lockdown has been extended for another 6 weeks until April 5th - which I know a lot of you don’t want to hear,  
    But, on the other hand, the Taoiseach also said that  by the end of June up to 82% of adults will have had their first dose of the vaccine. 
    How do you feeling following the Taoiseach’s announcement yesterday?  
     Are you disappointed that we face at least 6 more weeks of Level 5?  
    Are you optimistic that 'the end is truly in sight' with 82% of adults expected to have their 1st doses before July?  
    Andrea hears from listeners.
