Sent packing: Clueless campers caught hiking in Wicklow Mountains ‘not aware’ of Covid-19 restrictions
Despite repeated appeals for people to stay at home, it appears some people are just not getting the message.
Local gardai had to send a group of campers from neighbouring county Kildare packing after they were caught hiking around the Sally Gap at Military Road over the weekend.
Their excuse? They were “not aware” of the travel restrictions that have been in force for weeks and have been repeatedly warned about in every media outlet in the country on a daily basis.
An exasperated local Garda spokesperson said: “Hillwalkers from Sallins, Co. Kildare were spoken to at Military Road, The Sally Gap and claimed that they were not aware of unnecessary travel restrictions and putting us all at risk #stayathome #staysafe.”
