In a Twitter post earlier on Friday, HSE CEO Paul Reid said hospital figures were seeing an "amazing decline", which he credited to the Covid-19 vaccine rollout and public support.
He wrote: "Covid-19 inpatients in hospital continues an amazing decline. Down to 59 cases with 23 of those in ICU.
"This is a remarkable benefit of our strong vaccination programme and public support overall. We all deserve to cherish and protect these great moments."
He added in another post: "Further good news this morning. 8 adult hospitals now have zero Covid-19 inpatients (St James's, Naas, Tullamore, Sligo, Galway, Kilkenny, Mercy, Waterford). Also the three Children's Hospitals at Temple St, Crumlin & Tallaght. Great relief for patients, public and staff."
