A former Dublin lord mayor was questioned by gardaí who were investigating a suspected 'lock-in' at a city pub as part of an alleged breach of coronavirus regulations.

Last night, Councillor Nial Ring completely denied "any wrongdoing" and commended gardaí for the "professional and polite" way they handled matters.

He insisted there had been no breach of Covid-19 rules.
