There have been 66 more confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ireland.
While the Health Protection Surveillance Centre reports there have been no new deaths.
There has now been a total of 27,257 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 1,774 deaths in Ireland.
Of the cases notified on Sunday:
- 34 are men / 29 are women

- 12 are confirmed to be associated with outbreaks or are close contacts of a confirmed case
- Three cases have been identified as community transmission
The remainder of these cases are still under investigation.
Some 21 cases are in Kildare, 16 in Dublin and six in Limerick.
The rest of the 23 cases are in Clare, Donegal, Laois, Louth, Meath, Monaghan, Offaly, Roscommon, Sligo, Tipperary, Wicklow.
Dr Ronan Glynn, Acting Chief Medical Officer, said: "NPHET will meet tomorrow to review and discuss the case figures that have been reported in recent days and will make any necessary recommendations to Government which are required to protect the vulnerable, continue with the resumption of healthcare services and ensure the safe reopening of our schools."
"The phased re-opening of the country has afforded people the opportunity to socialise with each other again.
"However, some are doing this recklessly and undermining the efforts of the majority of people around the country who are following public health advice. This cannot continue.
"This pandemic isn’t over just because we are tired of living with it."
"We must all learn to behave and interact in a new way over the coming months so that COVID-19 cannot take root again in our communities.
"Please avoid crowds, reduce your social contacts, keep your distance from others, wash your hands and wear face coverings."
Taoiseach Micheál Martin has described Saturday's COVID-19 figures, which saw 200 new cases of the virus, as "deeply concerning".
Yesterday’s #COVID19 numbers were deeply concerning and this morning I discussed the evolving situation with the Tánaiste, Green Party Leader, Health Minister and acting CMO. The Govt and NPHET will continue to monitor the situation closely.
