Gardai Find More Pubs Breaching Covid 19 Guidelines

14 more breaches of Covid-19 laws have been detected in pubs across the country.

Gardai also carried out nearly 400 checkpoints last weekend, to enforce the lockdown in the midlands.

You need to have a 'substantial' meal - costing at least nine euro - to go to a pub at the moment.

It's part of the Covid-19 laws that are due to remain in place until at least the end of the month.

Between Tuesday and Sunday of last week, the gardai say there were 14 suspected breaches in pubs.

In the majority of cases, there was no evidence food was being served or eaten.

Since the operation began on July 3rd, 126 pubs have been under investigation for breaking the law.

Gardai have also been checking cars since last weekend, after a lockdown was put in place in Laois, Offaly and Kildare.

Last Saturday and Sunday, they carried out 172 checkpoints in the three counties, and 202 in surrounding areas.
