The Acting Chief Medical Officer Dr Ronan Glynn said: "The vast majority of young people in Ireland have followed public health advice and have made very significant sacrifices to protect themselves and others.
"People of all ages will occasionally slip up as they learn to live safely with this virus.
"We should not seek to attribute blame, but rather continue to encourage one another to build on and sustain the great efforts that we have all made to date.
He added: “We continue to urge everyone to observe the safe behaviours that we recommend such as physical distancing, washing hands regularly, wearing a face covering where appropriate, avoiding crowds and doing all we can to protect each other.
“NPHET continues to monitor the evolving situation very closely and will meet tomorrow.”
