Gardaí arrest seven people following reopening of hair salon in Balbriggan

Gardaí have arrested seven people after a hair salon in Balbriggan opened up in defiance of Covid-19 lockdown rules.

C and N Beauty Rooms opened up to the public yesterday but was shut down a short while later by officers. Its owner said she opened her premises as “she needs to put food on the table”.

She had been warned that she could be arrested if she reopened her doors again today.

There was a large garda presence outside the salon this morning as activists turned out to support the salon’s owner.

Gardaí said a total of seven people were arrested today and one woman was charged.
