Alleged Organiser Of Lock-down House Party Arrested In Co. Tipperary

A Garda spokesperson has confirmed that Gardaí have arrested and charged a 50 year old male, in relation to breaches of the Public Health Act 1947. The arrest took place yesterday.

Back in November 2020, Gardaí were alerted to a large house party in progress, in the Cappawhite village area of west Co. Tipperary.

When Garda officers arrived they found upwards of 100 people packed into the property identified and notified by a number of complainants; the former were found dancing with music blaring.

Following further investigations, Gardaí have now arrested the man whom they have identified as the promoter of the event, and detained him at Tipperary Town, Garda station. He has since been charged to appear before Tipperary District Court, latter sitting at Nenagh, on June 2nd, 2021.

It should be noted that a court appearance for organising a house party currently, could result in a €2,500 fine, together with a six months jail sentence.

To date Gardaí have issued some 20,250 fines for various offences associated with Covid-19 lock-down regulations.
