Gardaí have issued another appeal for the public to take care for the remainder of the bank holdiay weekend.

Since Thursday, Gardaí and other emergency services have dealt with a significant number of fatal incidents across the country.

These tragic incidents have left behind grieving families and friends and all incidents remain under appropriate investigation.

An Garda Síochána has appointed Family Liaison Officers to support families in all of these tragic fatal incidents.

“In the last 72 hours my colleagues in An Garda Síochána and in the other Emergency Services across the country have responded to a number of tragic fatal incidents,” said Assistant Commissioner, Paula Hilman.

“Too many families have suffered trauma already this weekend.”

Assistant Commissioner Hilman said that no matter what activity you are taking part in this weekend, please take care.

“Please ensure that you are following all the appropriate safety advice. If you are travelling on our roads I appeal to drivers ‘please slow down’ and ask all road users to take care over the remaining days of this Bank Holiday Weekend,” she said.
