A new report shows gardai have used their powers 702 times since April, with action required on 242 occasions in the North West Garda Region, which involves ten counties, including Galway and Louth.

Over the past month, there were 31 incidents of people spitting or coughing at Gardai recorded.

The Policing Authority says anti-spit hoods were used 6 times in that time.
