Three people have been arrested after Gardaí broke up a street party in Limerick.

Several people had gathered on Carysfort Avenue, College Court in Castletroy on Tuesday evening.

A policing operation was put in place and "a significant number of Garda units" attended the scene.

But Gardaí say following "continued and orchestrated non-compliance" with public health regulations - and failing to comply with directions - they were forced to intervene at around 7.15pm.

Two men, aged in their 20s, were arrested under public order legislation and one man - also aged in his 20s - was arrested under misuse of drugs legislation.

Officers also issued approximately 30 fines for breaches of the Health Act.

Videos of the gathering had been posted on social media.

Gardaí say they have started an investigation into identifying the organisers of the event, and a file will be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
