Gardai are to increase their patrols in public spaces over the final two weeks of Level 5 Covid 19 restrictions.

In particular they will focus on large groups gathering in open spaces through increased patrols on foot, and on mountain bikes in urban areas.

New figures published by gardai today show 493 Covid related prosecutions have been instigated since Covid 19 restrictions were first introduced.

In the last 3 weeks since the beginning of Level 5 there has been 29 alleged breaches by shops, 8 alleged breaches by pubs and 1 alleged breach for face covering regulations.

Open Spaces

Gardai say for the next two weeks they will increase patrols in open spaces and public parks - they will maintain a significant presence on our roads, continuing static and rolling checkpoints, and they they will also continue to check retail and business premises, checking compliance

Deputy Commissioner, John Twomey says "While it has been disappointing at times to witness some activities by small numbers of individuals and groups - he is encouraged by the overwhelming support and compliance being demonstrated right throughout our communities.
