Operation Navigation: 20 pubs in potential breach of guidelines last week

An additional 20 suspected breaches of health regulations or licencing laws have been detected by Gardaí during inspections of pubs last week.

Operation Navigation launched on Friday, July 3 is an ongoing operation to ensure Covid-19 guidelines are being adhered to. 

Since its inception, An Garda Síochána have observed 59 potential breaches of the health regulations.

The majority of these cases continue to refer to no evidence of food being served or consumed and no evidence of receipts to show that food had been sold, Gardaí say.

Under public health guidelines, alcohol can only be served if a substantial meal worth at least €9 has been purchased.

Where potential breaches of the Public Health Regulations are identified and where a person does not come into compliance with the regulations, a file is submitted to the Director of Public Prosecutions for a direction as to how to proceed.

Speaking at Garda Headquarters Deputy Commissioner, Policing and Security, John Twomey said there has been a high level of compliance from licensed premises. 

"An Garda Síochána continue to carry out intensive visits of licensed premises which have opened for business in accordance with Covid-19 Public Health Regulations. 

"An Garda Síochána continues to see high level of compliance. This is welcome," he said. 

"The Covid-19 Pandemic remains a real and present public health crisis and An Garda Síochána continues to appeal to all citizens, businesses and organisations to comply with Public Health Guidelines and Regulations in order to continue to save lives," Deputy Commissioner Twomey continued.
