The investigation is now ongoing after officials raided a “fully functional bar” at the illegal watering hole near Athy, Co Kildare at 8pm on Friday.
The grounds were furnished with a bar, stools, tables, chairs, a 70-inch flat-screen TV, and a large pool table.
There were several beer taps at the bar as well as a cooler under the bar and kegs.
There was also a smoking area, storage room and toilet on the premises. Bunting and sports flags adorned the interior.
Gardai confiscated five kegs of beer, a significant amount of spirits and bottled beers, and various bar equipment such as taps, gas and coolers.
Authorities learned of the suspected shebeen after a video posted on social media with dozens of people enjoying a song at the illegal premises.
The night owls, some in GAA tops, were in the crowded place and one partygoer was literally swinging from the rafters.
Authorities learned of the alleged shebeen through social media and later ransacked the premises.
A Garda spokesman said yesterday: “A Garda Siochana would call anyone with information about the operation of illegal shebeens to contact the local Garda station.
“The Covid-19 pandemic remains a public health crisis and An Garda Siochana continues to appeal to all citizens to adhere to public health guidelines and regulations in order to continue to save lives.”
Meanwhile, officials were on patrol yesterday when new Level 5 laws came into effect.
Units were in place to patrol the 3-mile (3-mile) travel zone and harsh new penalties that mean house party hosts face fines of up to € 2,500 and six months in prison.
New laws came into effect over the weekend allowing Gardai to punish people for house gatherings.
The public must also expect fines of up to € 500 if they exceed the travel limit of 5 km introduced as part of blocking measures.
The measures resulted in empty streets in cities across the country on the normally busy Saturday holidays.
It will take a few days for fines for other Covid-19 rule violations, including the lack of a mask, to go into effect.
It is believed that a person could be charged a 50 euro bill if they did not wear a mask under the new legislation.
During the six-week lockdown introduced on Thursday, more than 2,500 uniformed Gardai will be on duty every day.
