According to the official An Garda Síochána Twitter page, 200 drink drivers were arrested between October 27 and 31.

They also tweeted "Drink Drivers - Reckless, selfish drivers putting themselves & other road users at risk. Never Drink & Drive!"

This comes after Transport Minister Shane Ross, said that road deaths on Irish roads "is very close to a crisis situation".

Gardai and the Road Safety Authority launched a joint campaign last week, urging drivers to act more responsibly on the roads over the bank holiday weekend.
