Galway city centre now has the highest inner-city incidence rate of Covid-19 in the country.


It's had a case rate of 531 per 100 thousand people in the last fortnight -- more than double the national average.


Buncrana in Co Donegal has the highest rate at 594, with Ballyjamesduff in Co Cavan just behind at 593.


Blanchardstown-Mulhuddart is the highest in Dublin, and Cork North-West has the largest rate in Cork.


Corca Dubhuine in Kerry has the lowest rate in the country.


Mayor of Galway is Mike Cubbard, he's been nervously watching his area's case rate rise in recent weeks.
