Gardai warn drivers ahead of Patrick’s weekend

Gardaí are asking drivers across the Shannonside region to leave extra time for their journeys over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Thousands will take to the roads over the next three days for St Patrick’s Day festivities in the region and beyond.

Extra Garda resources will be deployed over the next three days on national, regional and local roads checking for speed, seatbelts and intoxication.


Inspector Padraig Jones in Roscommon-Longford has this advice.
