Ten people have been fined after gardaí patrolling in the Wicklow mountains found them outside their 5km limit. This is the second weekend in which gardai have identified large number numbers of people visiting the mountains in spite of the Covid-19 restrictions. Last weekend, people were being turned away from the Wicklow uplands, while several towing trucks were deployed to take vehicles away on Sunday. Some tow trucks were removing two vehicles at a time; one on the back of the truck and another towed behind. One Garda source familiar with the operation told The Irish Times that gardaí would have towed more vehicles away but the way cars had been parked blocked access.
