Gardaí carry out investigation to identify organisers of anti-Covid-19 restrictions rally in Donegal

An investigation is underway by gardaí in an attempt to identify the organisers of the anti-Covid-19 restrictions rally that occurred yesterday in Donegal.

The demonstrations took place in the Market Square area of Letterkenny just hours after the announcement that the county was being upgraded to Level 3 of the Government’s Living With Covid plan.

Gardaí told The Journal.ie that they are not investigating breaches of public health regulations committed by the people in attendance, but were instead conducting an investigation under the new Health Act regulation that states, “A person shall not organise, or cause to be organised, a relevant event in a relevant county.”

Exceptions to this act are, if the event only takes place outdoors and if the organiser ensures that no more than 15 people are in attendance.
