The second episode of RTÉ's Open For Business focused on the tourism industry, an industry devastated by the lack of international visitors to Ireland.

The programme examined the Governmental guidelines that have been put in place to allow businesses to reopen across the country.

In studio, Richard and Ella chatted with Mark Cullen, chief inspector at the Health & Safety Authority, the organisation that is tasked with enforcing and policing these guidelines.

It also looked at how the downturn in the tourism and hospitality industries is having a knock-on effect on small independent food producers.

The programme also heard from three small family-run businesses, from West Cork to Louth, who are now trying to adapt their businesses, after being forced in lockdown to re-examine their business models and revenue streams.
