It is important to know that not all flights that are being advertised for sale are actually taking off the ground as permissions are required by the airlines to fly. Until South Africa has reached the appropriate level of "unlock" which allows free movement of International Flights, the only flights are Repatrriation flights in and out of South Africa and will require proof of your reason for travel from the South African and Irish governments/ departments. Before you book or pay for a flight be absolutely certain those flights are authorised.
Quaratines or Self-Isolations in each country may apply be certain to keep up to date on the relevant web pages as to what you need to do on permitted entry.
