It's up to bus and train drivers to enforce the new compulsory masks rule on public transport.

That's according to the Association of Garda Sergeants and Inspectors.

AGSI says the guidance is clear that the role of gardai is secondary.

However the National Bus and Rail Union says it's not going to ask drivers to enforce the rule.

Gardai Will Help Enforce - When Asked To

AGSI general secretary Antoinette Cunningham says gardai will help with enforcement when asked to step in;

"Bus drivers, the train drivers, the National Transport agency will request the person to put the face covering on."

"They can also refuse them entry onto the vehicle, they can ask them to leave the vehicle."

"But all of that has to take place before the guards are called."

"Our role in this seems to be secondary but we absolutely do have a role in assisting with the enforcement."

Guidance from the National Transport Authority is here.
