“An Garda Síochána continues to find groups gathering (house parties, social gatherings, exercise etc.) in breach of regulations.  Gatherings of this nature are still a breach of regulations and continue to risk the health of the individuals involved, their families and loved ones. These actions have the potential to jeopardize the recovery of the country from the Covid-19 pandemic,” said a spokesperson.
