132 checkpoints have been carried out every day on major roads since mid-October

It's part of Operation Fanacht, which aims to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Level 5 restrictions came into effect on midnight on October 21st.

The Garda operation has seen a large number of checkpoints, community patrols and visits to retail premises.

132 checkpoints were carried out on major roads and approximately 1,000 other checkpoints on secondary and minor roads per day.

There have been 13 suspected breaches of travel restrictions between October 22nd and October 31st.

In the same time, there has been one incident where not wearing a face mask resulted in a file being sent to the DPP.

That brings the total to eight since the regulation was introduced.

Gardaí say the vast majority of retail premises have complied with restrictions, however, up to October 31st, there have been eleven incidents where regulations have been breached.

Five people have also failed to provide the proper contact tracing details on landing forms, as part of the International Travel Regulations.
