Gardai To Be Given Powers To Fine People At House Parties

New fines are being brought in for people organising or attending house parties as part of tougher coronavirus laws.

The cabinet's agreed to bring in a system of graduated penalties for those breaking the rules.

As part of that, the cabinet's agreed to give Gardai new powers to crack down on house parties.

So Gardai can go to a house where a party's on - they can't go in but can ask the owner to put a stop to things - they can be fined if they refuse.

Gardai will also be able to wait outside a house for the party to finish - and fine anyone who'd been attending.

They'll also have powers to fine anyone they suspect of being on their way to a house party - who refuse to leave the area.

People not wearing face masks in shops, or breaking the 5 kilometre travel limit, may also face fines under the new rules.
