15 pubs face prosecution over Covid-19 regulation breaches last week

Under Operation Navigation, An Garda Síochána has continued to find widespread compliance by licensed premises with the public health regulations, although 15 potential breaches were uncovered last week.
 
From 19:00 on Friday, July 3 to 23:59 Sunday, September 20, An Garda Síochána has conducted thousands of checks on licensed premises throughout the country under Operation Navigation to support public health guidelines.
 
To date, the vast majority of licensed premises operating have been found to be in compliance with regulations and licensing laws.

From Monday, September 14 to Sunday, September 20, 15 potential breach incidents were found by Gardaí. Files will now be prepared for the DPP in each of these cases.

The cumulative total of potential breach incidents since Operation Navigation began is now 232.

Deputy Commissioner, Policing and Security, John Twomey said, "There continues to be a very high level of compliance among licensed premises. This is welcome. However, some licensed premises are risking the health of their employees, customers and local communities.
 
"We are at a critical point in tackling the spread of COVID-19 and everyone must take personal responsibility to avoid situations that are a risk to themselves, their family and their friends.”
