A further 1,456 Covid-19 cases have been reported by the Department of Health.
There are 261 covid patients in hospital, down 27 in the past 24 hours.
The head of the HSE, Paul Reid, says a "hugely disproportionate" number of people with Covid-19 in ICUs are unvaccinated.
66 covid patients are receiving intensive care in hospitals today - down seven in the past 24 hours.
New figures show vaccinated people have accounted for 17 percent of ICU admissions since April.
Damien McCallion from the HSE's vaccination programme, says the evidence is really strong that vaccines provide protection against severe illness and mortality.
