Gardaí identify 26 pubs potentially in breach of Covid-19 regulations


Gardaí have said they conducted 6,830 checks of pubs over the weekend as part of an operation to support public health guidelines.

In the case of the 26 pubs, gardaí say they found potential breaches of the health regulations or licensing laws “even after providing the premises with the opportunity to rectify the situation”.

They have not named the pubs in question nor the areas in which they are located.

Gardaí say a file is being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) in each of these cases.
