Operation IRENE 2023

Operation IRENE 2023 was officially launched by Chief Superintendent Matthew Nyland (DMR East) with An Cathaoirleach, Councillor Denis O’Callaghan in Kilbogget Park on the 15th June 2023.

This campaign has run for many years and is a targeted multi-agency operation to combat underage alcohol consumption and consumption of alcohol in public places throughout the Dublin Metropolitan Region and for us specifically in the Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown area, through the enforcement of legislation regulating the sale, supply and consumption of alcohol as well as relevant public order legislation. 

Operation Irene involves An Garda Síochána working in conjunction with Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council and other stakeholders, to counter anti-social behaviour by engaging directed patrolling in the County’s public amenities, namely parks and seafronts. The Operation will focus on tackling the following:



•         Public disorder
•         The consumption of alcohol in public places
•         The sale of alcohol to underage youths
•         Litter pollution offences
•         Public Transport issues
•         Water safety issues
•         Traffic congestion
•         And general crime in public amenities
