Section 184 of the Criminal Justice Act, 2006 provides for fixed charge offences in respect of section 4 (intoxication in a public place) and section 5 (disorderly conduct in a public place) of the Criminal Justice (Public Order) Act, 1994.

Work by An Garda Síochána is ongoing to facilitate the implementation of the section. I intend to commence the section in the near future.
