There have been a further 4,764 cases of Covid-19 with 598 people in hospital with the virus.
Of those in hospital, 126 people are being treated in intensive care.
Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan said: “Incidence of Covid-19 remains concerningly high, with 62,401 cases reported in the last 14 days.
“We need to continue to make every effort we can to drive down incidence of disease and break the chains of transmission.
“Covid-19 spreads when an infected person is in close proximity to other people. The best way we can stop Covid spreading to the people we meet is by meeting fewer people and avoiding crowds.”
