All Available Garda Resources In Clare Being Utilised For COVID Checkpoints

Clare’s Crime Prevention Officer says all available Garda resources in Clare are being utilised to mount high-visibility patrols and checkpoints.

As part of public health measures announced in recent days, Gardaí have introduced a number of measures focused on supporting compliance and providing advice and reassurance to the public.

They’re encouraging people to adhere to guidelines given including that you should only exercise within 2 kilometres of your home.


Sergeant Tríona Brooks says the vast majority of people in this county are complying with the guidelines, but that they will intervene in instances where that’s not the case.

Meanwhile, Public Offices in the county’s Garda Stations remain open, but in line with social distancing guidelines, people are being asked to get in touch by phone or to use online services in the first instance.
