Most pubs are complying with Covid-19 guidelines according to gardaí

Gardaí have been conducting thousands of searches in pubs throughout the country to investigate if Covid-19 guidelines are being met.

In a statement today, An Garda Síochána said “To date, the vast majority of licensed premises operating have been found to be in compliance with regulations and licensing laws, but in 37 individual cases, gardaí have found potential breaches of the health regulations or licensing laws even after providing the premises with the opportunity to rectify the situation”.

In all cases where guidelines were breached, it was the fact that there was a lack of evidence that food was consumed with the alcohol.

Files are being prepared for the Department of Public Prosecutions (DPP) in each case.
