This is in relation to an incident that occurred earlier on Monday involving a group of people not wearing face coverings on board a Red Line tram.

A spokesperson for Luas said that the CCTV footage captured is "high quality" and that it is being passed to the Gardaí to assist them with their investigation into the incident.

A statement was released by the organisation on Monday night, which read: "It is against the law to travel on Luas without wearing a face covering, with limited exemptions only. We thank the vast majority of Luas customers who cooperate and wear face coverings while travelling."

Footage of the incident in question was shared widely on social media on Monday evening.

Gardaí have said they are aware of videos circulating on social media showing a number of individuals on public transport not complying with public health regulations.

Gardaí also said that they had a presence at a protest that took place on Monday at the Garden of Remembrance in Dublin.

This protest then moved to Doctor Steevens' Hospital, where Gardaí remained at the scene.
