An Garda Síochána wants Dublin and Mayo football supporters – and all GAA fans – to enjoy tomorrow’s All-Ireland Football Final safely by following the public health guidelines and regulations.
An Garda Síochána has been liaising closely with the GAA at national and county level, as well with relevant Government Departments, on minimising the spread of COVID-19 among supporters before, during and after the match.
In addition, they have been working with licensed premises, particularly in Dublin and Mayo, to ensure their compliance with public health guidelines and regulations.
An Garda Síochána and the GAA have stressed the need for supporters to remember their individual and collective responsibility to tackle the spread of COVID-19.
Deputy Commissioner, Policing & Security, John Twomey said:
“The All-Ireland Football Final is always an incredible occasion and this year it will be special for many people especially given the last nine months. However, COVID-19 doesn’t relax or let-up for an All-Ireland Final, no matter how historic. The virus is still spreading, it is still leading to serious illness and death.”
