Gardaí will not have additional powers to stop county to county movement

According to Garda Commissioner Drew Harris, gardaí will have no additional powers to stop people from moving from county to county.

However, the Commissioner added that to ignore a checkpoint would be “a foolish choice”.

From midnight, there will be 132 fixed checkpoints on arterial routes including motorways which will be reduced to one lane across the country.

The Commissioner stated that the checkpoints would follow the “three Es protocol- engage, educate and encourage.”
