Non-essential travel to Northern Ireland can be punishable with €100 fine

From today, anyone who travels to or from Northern Ireland for non-essential reasons can be fined €100.

With enforcement coming into effect since 7am this morning, a Fixed Payment Notice will be issued to each individual who crosses the border.

Garda checkpoints will continue to be stationed across the country, particularly on access roads to airports and ports to ensure that journeys being undertaken are essential.

Fines have to be paid within 28 days with An Garda Síochána stating that there will be a process at the court service in place for those who fail to pay their fine within 28 days which may result in a €1,000 fine or imprisonment.
