A DRIVER who was turned back from two east Cork beaches within a short period of time was hit with a €100 fine over the weekend.

The man had travelled more than 20km before being met at a Covid checkpoint near Garryvoe beach car park.

“After Gardaí engaged with the man he agreed to leave the area and go straight home," garda spokesman explained.

"Shortly after Gardaí spoke to the same driver in Ardnahinch beach car park.
