The June Bank Holiday weekend is quickly approaching…
Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Gardai are encouraging people not to travel to tourist hot-spots for the upcoming Bank Holiday weekend.
The Gardai have noted that extra checkpoints will now be in place and that the Government’s 5km rule will remain and will be enforced. Those who are breaking these restrictions will be asked to return home with immediate effect.
“We also remind people, particularly coming up to the bank holiday weekend, about not travelling to holiday homes or making non-essential journeys,” said the Garda commissioner.
Wexford is one of the top-tourist spots in Ireland, with visitors drawn to the county’s long sandy beaches and the warm weather the Sunny South East offers.
Visitors will be welcome to enjoy the various amenities that the Sunny South East offers in the near future, just not now.
Despite this, there is already a notable number of ‘visitors’ already down; for example, Courtown, just outside Gorey, has seen a huge influx of people over the past week.
At the time of writing, Wexford (216 cases) has the second lowest number of coronavirus cases in Ireland per-capita, just behind coastal neighbour Waterford.
