A video of an outdoor rave at the Oliver Bond flats in Dublin was widely shared across social media yesterday.
The footage showed a crowd of around 100 people without face coverings failing to observe social distancing.
Meanwhile another video was posted by a farmer in Meath, who found a large group of people having a rave on his land over the weekend.
Should Gardaí be given extra powers to break up illegal gatherings such as these?
Mary Seery Kearney, Fine Gael Senator for the Dublin South-Central constituency, and Liam Herrick, Executive Director of the Irish Council of Civil Liberties, joined us to discuss this.
