A man who flew back to Ireland from the United States to see his critically ill father has been allowed to avoid undergoing mandatory hotel quarantine on humanitarian grounds.

Colm Bates's 91-year-old father is "on his deathbed" and the purpose of his journey to Ireland was to visit him in Tipperary before he dies, the High Court was told yesterday.

Mr Bates, an Irish citizen, has lived in New York since 1996 and is project manager for a construction development company.
