There will be extra Garda checkpoints in Clare and across the country this weekend.
A new High Visibility Nationwide Policing Plan came into effect at 7am this morning and will run until midnight on Sunday.
There will more checkpoints and patrols particularly at public parks and popular attractions.
Officers will also be encouraging people to practice public health guidelines, and as a last resort they will be using enforcement where needed.
Clare’s Crime Prevention Officer Sergeant Triona Brooks says they hope people will re-double their efforts and follow public health advice.
