Kathleen Lynch has been released from hospital.
The Junior Health Minister was sent home yesterday after spending almost a week in Cork University Hospital.
Minister Lynch was transferred by air ambulance from the intensive care unit of Letterkenny General Hospital where she collapsed last Wednesday.
She is believed to have suffered an attack of the blood infection septicaemia - for which she was treated in Cork last year.
A spokesperson for the Labour Party today says Minister Lynch is now convalescing at home where she is expected to remain for several weeks.
She is continuing with her course of medication but her condition is reportedly under control.
