Gardaí arrested seven people for breaching restrictions over the Easter weekend

Seven arrests have been made by gardaí over the Easter weekend as people failed to abide by the strict restrictions that were introduced to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Criminal proceedings will not take place until the Director of Public Prosecutions is consulted for each case.

Garda Commissioner ‘Drew Harris’ stated “Regrettably, there was a small minority who did not adhere to the guidelines or other legislation and Garda members had no option but to use the regulations or other legislation”.

He added that there was a high level of compliance with the public health guidelines over the weekend.
