Ian, are you NUJ?  I have no press card but whenever I happen upon a checkpoint I just tell the Gardai who I am, what I'm doing and point to the cameras.  Then I ask if I can get 'a couple of shots' of the checkpoint and I've not had a refusal or any further questions yet.  I guess I've the gift of the gab!

 

Have you kissed the Blarney stone?

I never did!  I doubt I will now as kissing it has been banned due to a little known virus which is apparently rife at the moment...

Andy, yes, I have had an NUJ press card for about six years.  Difficult to get but very useful.  It currently allows me to go out and undertake news photography without any restraint.  You are lucky the Grardai are relaxed, as you say “gift of the gab”.  Stay safe/well .....
