Over 400 Fines Issued By Gardaí For Non-Essential Travel


Over 400 fines have been issued by An Garda Síochána for non-essential travel since the 11th January.

Over 300 of these were issued last weekend.

As of Friday evening (January 15 2021), 74 fines for non-essential travel had been processed.

The fines issued over the weekend will now be checked and processed.

Once these are processed, definitive figures will be available later this week.

In advance of the weekend, An Garda Síochána had advised the public of the need to plan their activities over the weekend to take account that people are only allowed to exercise within 5km of their home.

The vast majority of people were compliant with this over the weekend.
