Fine Gael TD and Minister of State for Finance, Public Expenditure and Reform Patrick Donovan
Donal O’Regan reports in the Limerick Leader…
Minister Patrick O’Donovan said people flouting the HSE regulations need to “cop on”.
“Whether that’s hanging around street corners, breaking the 2km rule, behaving inappropriately, having parties or whatever – these people are now breaking the law. They should be bright before the courts and held accountable,” said Minister O’Donovan.
He called on the community to “do their part and report people”.
“I know that might sound like a difficult thing to do but it is not. You need to ring the guards and you need to report them. Even if they are your neighbours you need to report them because the behaviour of some could cost the lives of others,” he said.
7.30pm. Traffic is bumper to bumper on the N11 South, heading towards Wicklow & Wexford. Imagine the cost and time of Gardai used, in having to set up road checks, because some people cannot seem to bear respecting our #COVID19 travel restrictions. Shameful. pic.twitter.com/CHJBddE188
