Croke Park is to be used as a "drive-thru" testing centre for coronavirus following a request from the HSE.
The stadium is one of a number of facilities being set up across the country to test patients for COVID-19.
A spokesperson for Croke Park said it was agreeing to a "high-level request" from the HSE today in the "national interest".
It will operate as a testing centre for people with appointments only and will not be used as a walk-up service.
Meanwhile, an online system to refer patients to get tested for the virus is back up and running after crashing earlier.
GPs had reported their phone lines were jammed and due to demand, the system couldn't cope when they tried to record a referral.
