Garda checkpoint on the St Francis Bridge tonight

Vehicles and other road users are being inspected at Garda checkpoints across Kilkenny City tonight, with Gardaí in place on routes, enforcing both traffic legislation and crime prevention.

It's part of a crackdown on drink driving as well as a response to a spate of burglaries in the area recently.
