Gardaí are increasing the number of checkpoints in place across the country this weekend with an enhanced focus on crime prevention and detection.
An Garda Síochána's new "high visibility", nationwide policing plan is also focusing on support for the vulnerable.
The plan, which is in effect until midnight tomorrow, is in support of public health guidelines to prevent the spread of Covid-19 in the community.
It will supplement the work being done under Operation Fanacht and Operation Navigation, which both continue this weekend.
Mayo based Superintendent Paudie O'Shea has been telling Midwest News that Checkpoints will be in place across Mayo this weekend.
