Gardai are urging Dublin and Mayo GAA fans to comply with covid-19 guidelines this Saturday when the two counties meet in the All-Ireland football final.

They have been in touch with pubs in both counties to ensure that all regulations are followed before, during and after the game.

High visibility patrols will be carried out by Gardai throughout the day in key locations in Mayo and Dublin.

Gardai say there was a high level of compliance last weekend for the hurling final, and are hopeful they will see the same this weekend.

Deputy Commissioner, Policing & Security, John Twomey said, "The All-Ireland Football Final is always an incredible occasion and this year it will be special for many people especially given the last nine months. However, COVID-19 doesn’t relax or let-up for an All-Ireland Final, no matter how historic. The virus is still spreading, it is still leading to serious illness and death.

He added "If you are somewhere to watch the match or celebrate afterwards and there are too many people there – leave. Limit your contacts. Maintain social distancing. Wash your hands regularly. Wear a face mask where appropriate."
