The 203 has been increased to 305 (self employed included).

https://www.rte.ie/news/coronavirus/2020/0324/1126102-covid-19-wage-payments/
The Government is to increase the Covid-19 Pandemic Unemployment Support payment for people who have been laid-off due to the virus from €203 to €350.
The payment will also apply to the self-employed affected by the virus.
The scheme costing an estimated €3.7 billion will initially run for 12 weeks.

https://www.gov.ie/en/service/be74d3-covid-19-pandemic-unemployment-payment/
If you have already applied before the 24th of March or are already in receipt of the Pandemic Unemployment Payment you do not need to do anything. Your next payment will be paid at the increased rate.
Payment is made by electronic transfer only (into your bank account) and only into accounts held in Irish financial institutions. It will be paid in to your bank account every Tuesday once your application is processed.

@ Dalymount - you're getting a different payment.  This thread is about the no-questions-asked €203 payment (since increased) for the unemployed but not sick.  I think you're after the illness benefit (unemployed and sick) which is €305 (since increased as well).  You need a doctor's cert for your one which the doctor is meant to send it automagically since it's all computerised nowadays.  From reading your other posts, I don't think she did.  That's probably the holdup for you.

@ vandriver - can you remember when you sent your application off?  Wondering how long it takes to process?

Watty when I heard nothing after a week,I went back to the surgery,and they told me its not up to them to send the cert which I thought they had done.I let a bit more time elapse,and then it seems the doctor gave me the wrong codes then apperently she gave me the wrong form also.then the guy I spoke in there said because I am approved for a state pension in June,im not entitled to a payment at all.the latest is there is supposed to be a decision letter in the post for me.I wouldnt mind,only the fukin thing is only for amax of two weeks

My advice (not being the best in the world about all this) would be to ring them to send out the form again (or print it if you can) and send it off fresh and back dated to 13/3/20 when it all kicked off.

Dollymount Did you fill in the Yellow form ? You are applying for two weeks sick .You dont have the Virus so you do not qualify for the Covid self isolating payment ,you are self employed so you dont qualify for ordinary sick pay .Go on line and apply for the Covid no more work payment there is a LINK up here .

What makes you think your two week sicknote will be paid when your previous four months with a fractured pump you got fuck all why did you not apply for and get the sick when you were really sick and hospitalised .APPLY NOW .
