Gardai have been conducting checkpoints and patrols across the country all weekend as Level Five compliance checks continue.

Nine people were arrested in Cork City on Saturday night for various offences while checks took place countrwide.

A garda spokesperson said: “From the outset in supporting the COVID-19 public health guidelines and regulations, An Garda Síochána has and will continue to adopt, a graduated policing response based on its tradition of policing by consent.

“This has seen Garda members engage, explain, encourage and, as a last resort, enforce.

“An Garda Siochana is committed to acting in a proportionate manner and working with the community to achieve compliance.

“The COVID-19 Pandemic remains a public health crisis and An Garda Síochána continues to appeal to all citizens to comply with Public Health Guidelines and Regulations, in particular essential journeys, in order to continue to save lives.”
