More Garda patrols & “roving checkpoints” for border counties


There will be no Garda checkpoints on the Border after the Brexit deadline passes tomorrow night.

But the force says there will be more patrols and "roving checkpoints" in border counties.

The force says it's bulked up Garda numbers by a fifth in the region since 2016.

Garda spokesman Liam Geraghty says border communities will notice a difference in the weeks ahead.
