Bikers are being warned to take extra precautions on Tipperary roads this weekend.

Local Gardai are ramping up their presence all around the county for the Easter and warning all road-users to be mindful of their safety.

Inspector Eddie Golden says there are more motorbikes on the roads at weekends now as we approach the better weather.

And he says you need to check your bike is in good working order and refresh your skills before taking it out for the first time since the winter.
