Most of the arrivals came from countries which are not on Ireland's official 'green list'. 10,000 of those were from the UK, almost 5,000 came from Spain and over 2,000 arrived from France.

Just over 1,000 passengers arrived from the US during the same period.

The nationwide figures are up almost 30% on last week's statistics, where roughly 28,000 passengers flew into the country, while they're up 60% on the preceding week, where just 23,000 people arrived.
