Investigation launched into Letterkenny anti-lockdown protest

An investigation is underway to identify organisers of an anti-lockdown protest in Donegal yesterday afternoon.

Dozens of people gathered in the Market Square, Letterkenny to hear speeches against Covid 19 restrictions.

Gardai aren't looking into breaches of public health rules by those attending as social distancing and mask wearing are "non-penal regulations".

But they are trying to identify the organisers under laws banning outdoor gatherings that don't comply with coronavirus restrictions.
