A nightclub in Dublin has said it is offering free antigen tests to all ticket holders.

Pygmalion, which is located on South William Street, said customers will need a negative result to gain entry.

Under Government guidelines, customers also need a Covid-19 vaccination certificate to get into a nightclub.

A spokesperson for the venue said: "Tests will be self-administered, and there will be assistance available if necessary."

Meanwhile, the Cabinet Committee on Covid-19 is meeting this evening to discuss measures aimed at stemming the spread of the virus.

Taoiseach Micheál Martin said a number of issues, including the wider roll-out of antigen testing would be discussed.

He also said the Government would also look at ways to subsidise antigen tests to make them more affordable for people during the winter months.

GPs have warned that antigen testing should only be used in specific circumstances.

GP and member of the National Covid-19 GP Liaison Committee, Ray Walley said that while antigen testing can be useful, a PCR test should be carried out if a person has symptoms of the virus.

"A PCR test is something which is more accurate in a symptomatic person," he said.

"In regard to antigen tests they have their utility, certainly we should not use them to do dangerous activity."
