Video footage has emerged online of large crowds gathering in the area

Kerry Mitchell has this report for RedFM News: 

'Gardaí made nine arrests after large crowds were seen gathered in the City between 5pm and 9pm last night. 

They say most of those gathered were part of family groups and social bubbles and fully complied with Covid-19 restrictions. 

Four men were arrested but have since been released and a file is being prepared for the DPP. 

One man has been charged with public order offences while another man will be offered an Adult Caution. 

Two juvenile men will be processed through the Juvenile Diversion Programme

Gardaí also say they intervened with a group of young men suspected of being involved in the sale and supply of illegal drugs. 

One man ran from Gardaí which led to a brief chase, the man was then arrested and a quantity of suspected cocaine was recovered. 

One Garda received minor facial injuries during the incident.'
