Did you know that new regulations to enforce the mandatory wearing of face masks and face coverings on public transport (buses and trains) in Ireland is now compulsory?

Introduced to protect individuals during the pandemic, the National Transport Authority will have the authority and the capacity to turn people away if they are not wearing a face mask.

Failure to comply could result in a driver or inspector alerting gardaí and failure to cooperate with gardaí can result in arrest and prosecution, which could lead to a €2,500 fine and/or 6 months in prison.

Does wearing a Face Mask apply to Everyone?

No, there are some exemptions:

  • People with trouble breathing
  • People who cannot remove a face covering without help
  • People with special needs and who may feel upset or uncomfortable wearing a face covering
  • Children under the age of 13 (as per the HSE guidelines).

Where can you buy a Face Mask or Face Covering?
