The first case of A/H1N1 flu was confirmed in the Irish Republic on Saturday, according to Press Association.

Tony Holohan, Ireland's chief medical officer was quoted as saying that laboratory test results which were previously reported as probable influenza A/H1N1, have now been confirmed.

The patient, recently returned from Mexico, has been taking anti-virus medicine since he went to his general practitioner with symptoms. He now remains quarantined at his home in the east of the country.

Holohan, who is from the Department of Health and Children, said the case was originally reported on April 30.

"All appropriate clinical and public health actions have been taken. The individual is recovering well," added the chief medical officer.
