The latest figures came as the Government discussed plans to introduce a raft of tighter measures around travel.
Minister for Transport Eamon Ryan said that part of these measures include garda checkpoints at airports.
He added gardaí are stopping people going to and from airports to establish why they are travelling.
The Green Party leader said the decision to set up checkpoints was made because the Government realised we needed to go further and tighten up Covid-19 measures.
That started on Friday people will have noticed guards checkpoints at approaches coming out of the airport and [gardaí] are saying you cant fly, you cannot be more than 5km from your home, you will be fined, you will be prosecuted. That has to stop immediately, he told RTÉ.
