Sir, – You report (News, December 11th) that the offence of refusing to put on a face masks was added to the Garda fixed-charge discover (FCN) system final Monday, six weeks after this offence was created.
Apparently the knowledge expertise adjustments required so as to add home events to the FCN system “will not be full”.
