Gardaí in Dublin and surrounding areas are implementing the new Level Three restrictions introduced in Dublin following an announcement by Taoiseach Micheál Martin on Friday evening.
Targeted checkpoints have been put in place around the capital to stop people from leaving the county for non-essential reasons.

Checks are also being carried out in popular destinations, such as the Sally Gap and Glendalough in Wicklow, as these were identified as place Dubliners might go to get away from restrictions.
