Gardaí monitoring pubs over bank holiday weekend

AN Garda Síochána’s Operation Navigation will continue over the bank holiday weekend with a focus on compliance with the public health regulations by way of continued visits to licensed premises.

Deputy Commissioner, Policing and Security, John Twomey, has confirmed that the gardaí will be carrying out inspections to ensure adherence to Covid regulations with the aim of helping to stop the spread of the virus and protect society.

Deputy Commissioner Twomey asked “that we work together to minimise the risk to each other, to our families and the local community”.

Where people don't take on the advices of An Garda Síochána and continue to breach the regulations, prosecutions will be initiated and a file will be submitted to the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Such breaches will also be raised at the annual licensing courts.
