The number of notifications of hepatitis C continued at a very high rate in 2011 (figure 2). Most cases occurred in young to middle-aged adults, 66% of whom were male. Where risk factor data were available, 83% were injecting drug users. The majority of cases were notified in the greater Dublin area.
