456 new cases of covid 19 have been confirmed in the Republic and 13 more people with the virus have died.
A technical issue led to a reduced number of cases reported in recent days and this is reflected in a higher number of cases today.
There are 197 new infections in Dublin, 37 in Donegal, 33 in Limerick, 21 in Louth and 20 in Kilkenny - the rest are spread across 21 other counties.
There are five new cases in Mayo, less than five in Galway, Sligo, Roscommon and Leitrim.
The country's 14 day incidence rate has risen to 80.9.
