Two youths have been referred to the Juvenile Diversion Programme — and four men have been released as files are readied for the DPP.

“These people cannot see the reality of the situation, and it’s an absolute disaster – and next weekend will probably be no different.
“I really don’t know where we’re going to go from here.
“And I can see NPHET and the Government impose further restrictions to the middle of December if we don’t cop ourselves on.”
