Gardaí detect 24 more pub Covid breaches

The majority of cases continue to refer to no evidence of food being served or consumed and no evidence of receipts to show that food had been sold.

An Garda Siochana have detected 24 more breaches as they continue to enforce Public Health Regulations and find widespread compliance by licenced premises.

Since the commencement of Operation Navigation on July 3, Gardaí conducting visits to licenced premises have found the vast majority to be acting in compliance with licensing laws and public health regulations, with only a total of 105 found to be in breach.

The cumulative total for last week up to July 26 increased to 81.

The majority of these cases continue to refer to no evidence of food being served or consumed and no evidence of receipts to show that food had been sold.

Files will now be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions in each of these cases.

Deputy Commissioner, Policing and Security, John Twomey said: “We are continuing to see high levels of compliance by licenced premises to the Public Health Regulations and this was especially evident across the bank holiday weekend. However, there are still a minority of licenced premises that are failing to adhere to the regulations. An Garda Síochána is asking that licensed premises and their customers continue to play their part in reducing the spread of COVID-19 and protect the community.”
