Gardaí had to turn back cyclists in the East of the country who were between 30-50km from their homes despite the Covid-19 lockdown.

Under the current advice you should not travel further than 2km from your home and this rule also applies to cyclists and runners. 

An Garda Síochána said: "Please exercise responsibly. We are all in this together so let's follow the guidelines set out on essential travel, exercise and social distancing."
