More than 17,000 Digital Covid Certificates had to be re-issued in recent days because of a missing síneadh fada in people's names, Tánaiste Leo Vardakar has confirmed.

Conradh na Gaeilge had complained about a number of misspellings of names in Irish on some of the more than 2 million certificates issued over the past week.

Mr Varadkar said the mistakes in relation to the fada had been rectified. He said that part of the problem with delays in the Digital Covid Certificate Helpline number is that people are ringing in with all sorts of queries not related to the cert, including questions about indoor dining in other countries.
