Rolling checkpoints across the region

Gardaí will introduce more checkpoints across the North West from today as part of the Level 5 restrictions.

Training in the Garda College in Templemore will also stop so recruits can be released to help with frontline duties.

The extension of Operation Fanacht will see Gardai continue their policy of policing by consent with enforcement only being used as a last resort.

Sgt Darren Corcoran from Manorhamilton Garda Station says there will be rolling checkpoints across primary routes in the region
