The number of patients waiting on trolleys has fallen significantly compared to yesterday - it's now 639.
Figures from the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation show a drop for the third day in a row.
Yesterday's was 838 and it was over 900 on Tuesday.
The two previous totals were the highest ever recorded by the INMO since the union started its trolley watch almost 20 years ago.
People are 'dying unnecessarily' as a result of the bed shortage in Irish hospitals, a consultant in emergency medicine has warned.
Mick Molloy said there is no quick fix.
"There isn't a quick solution, that is the problem," he said.
"This is a massive building programme across the whole State required.
"The bed capacity in hospitals is dramatically below international levels, and it is dangerous.
"People are dying unnecessarily as a result."
He said asking people to do more work to clear the backlog is the wrong approach.
"The call, I think, is in the wrong direction," he said.
"I work in a small hospital... there are only three of us employed in this Emergency Department.
"One of the consultants covers another Emergency Department for their on-call, because that was the way the HSE set up the Emergency Departments in the '90s and 2000s.
"So there are only two of us who do on-call services in the hospital; there isn't much more you can do when there's only two of you.
"The situation relates to a lack of capacity in beds, not specifically medical staff and nursing staff - although there are capacity issues there as well.
"The major issue is the inactivity and the lack of progress of the Government in implementing their own reports, dating back to the early 2000s when the current Tánaiste was the Minister for Health".
