An Garda Síochána stated that large numbers of people in Dublin city centre socialised responsibly and enjoyed the outdoor amenities of the city.

As a result of public safety concerns and a number of public order incidents that occurred over the weekend, high visibility gardaí supported by the Public Order Unit were deployed to patrol the city.

Gardaí in Cork stated that the city centre remained relatively calm throughout the evening with no significant incidents being reported.

However, there was a public order incident reported at approximately 11pm at Kennedy Quay where gardaí were sent to disperse a group of people.

A total of eight people were arrested for public order offences across Cork city. Recently, there has been mixed opinions in relation to how gardaí have been dealing with these incidents.

Minister for the Environment, Climate and Communications Eamon Ryan has called for a different and more thought-through approach in regards to dealing with the large groups that have gathered in city centres across the country.
