126 pubs now suspected of breaching Covid-19 regulations

However, Gardaí have said they are continuing to find "widespread compliance by licensed premises".

14 pubs in Ireland were found to have potentially breached Covid-19 regulations when Gardaí inspected their premises between 4-9 August.

An Garda Síochána released information on Wednesday evening, where they reminded the public that they continue to enforce Public Health Regulations and that they are finding "widespread compliance" by licensed premises.

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

Following the addition of the 14 new cases, the cumulative national total now stands at 126 incidents recorded as potential breaches since the beginning of July.

The majority of these cases continue to refer to no evidence of food being served or consumed.

The current Covid regulations mean that no alcohol can be served to a person without them having also ordered a 'substantial meal' costing at least €9.

Customers must also vacate their table after 105 minutes.

Also, as part of Operation Fanacht last weekend, there was a total of 374 checkpoints conducted in Kildare, Laois/Offaly and all surrounding divisions, which focused on supporting public compliance with the recently introduced travel restrictions in those specific areas.
