Gardai Advising People To Stay Home This Weekend To Protect Themselves And Their Loved Ones

It’s after the force issued over 2,400 fines for non-essential travel

Cliona O’Dwyer has this report for RedFM News:

‘Gardaí can now issues fines for organising and attending a house party – 16 fines were issued on Thursday to organisers and people at house parties in locations like Limerick, Cork, Galway, and Kilkenny/Carlow. People travelling to or from a party – even to their neighbour’s house – can also be fined. They’re advising the public to stay within the 5km limit when taking part in exercise this weekend. People on non-essential journeys can be fined 100 euro and since being introduced on January 11th, over 2,400 fines have been issued to those who left their homes without a reasonable excuse. Gardai are continuing to mount checkpoints on access roads to airports and ports to check if people travelling to them – in private cars or on bus services – are on an essential journey. Nationwide checkpoints and high visibility patrols at public amenities across the country will also continue this weekend.’
