Walk-in test centres open in Naas, Crumlin, Athlone and Ballinasloe

Friday, April 2

Four new walk-in testing sites open today for people who have no symptoms of Covid-19 but who still wish to be tested.

The tests are free for local people over the age of 16, with no symptoms. 

The centres opening today are at Naas racecourse in Co Kildare, Crumlin GAA Clubhouse in Dublin, Athlone Regional Sports Centre in Co Westmeath, and the Town Hall and Library car park in Ballinasloe, Co Galway. 

The Dublin pop-up testing sites will operate for five days.

The sites at Naas and Athlone are open for five days and the Ballinasloe facility will open for three days. 

This brings to seven the number of temporary testing hubs seeking to find asymptomatic infections among the general population that have opened in the past two days.  

Similar pop-up testing sites were opened in Finglas, Balbriggan and Navan during the week.
