Investigations are continuing after three gardai were assaulted in County Donegal yesterday while enforcing Covid-19 regulations.

Two gardai were brought to Letterkenny University Hospital to be treated for their injuries. A third garda was treated at the scene.

Two men in their 20s were arrested and taken to Milford Garda station and have since been charged. They are due to appear before Letterkenny District Court on the 29th March.

A third man, in his late teens, was arrested during this incident for public order offences. He has since been released without charge, pending consideration for the Adult Caution scheme.

A small quantity of cocaine was seized during the incident.

A number of fixed penalty notices for breaches of Public Health Regulations will be issued in due course.
