Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
10k hospitalised out of 25K tested positive is a 40% hospitalisation rate - higher than Ireland's 26%.

You also have to be symptomatic to be tested in Ireland and the criterion has recently been tightened from one symptom to two. There is a 40K backlog of people waiting to be tested so presumably that will result in another spike of positives as the testing rate ramps up to 10K per day. Currently 1564 have tested positive out of c. 18k tests carried out - a c. 9% positive rate which would indicate the 40,000 backlog will reveal another 3.6K positives when completed.
