That's according to research by the ESRI.

33% of people dining or drinking indoors say their Covid-19 certificate was not checked.

Hospitality owners and operators are required, by law, to ensure those dining inside have been vaccinated.

Research by the ESRI has further found that 73% of participants have a  digital Covid certificate.

The study took place between August 10th and 17th.

On the day prior to the survey, 33 per cent had had a close contact – 27 per cent while not wearing a mask – and 28 per cent had either visited another home or received a visitor in their own.

Professor Pete Lunn is Head of Behavioural Research Unit at the ESRI, and co-author of this report.

He joined Clem Ryan on Tuesday's edition of Kildare Today.
