Donegal remains a Covid hotspot

Three local electoral areas in Donegal are among the country’s five worst-hit regions for Covid-19.


Milford, Letterkenny, and Lifford-Stranorlar all have 14-day incidence rates of over 1,000 cases per 100,000 people.


Milford’s is the highest in the country, at 1,038 – which is over two and a half times the national average.


Mallow in Cork has Ireland’s second-highest rate, while Blanchardstown-Mulhuddart in Dublin is fifth.
