Its the first time this year the number of recipients has fallen under that figure.

The numbers receiving the Pandemic Unemployment Payment have fallen below 400,000 for the first time this year.

Over 385,000 people received the support today, which marks a drop of almost 18,000 on last week.

There are almost 5,000 fewer construction workers getting the support today as the full sector reopened.

At the end of this month the Department of Social Protection says it will set out the future of the PUP after June 30th.
