Senior gardaí have warned Government officials that new Covid-19 restrictions are unenforceable.

At inter-departmental meetings, gardaí have voiced significant concerns over the vagueness of some regulations they have been asked to police. They have specifically raised issues with enforcing new rules preventing people playing golf more than 5km from their homes.
