After Clare Daly and other United Left Alliance TDs named people who had their penalty points quashed in the Dáil last December, a series of public meetings were held in the Red Cow Moran Hotel.
Members of the public who had concerns about garda practices were invited to attend the meetings and tell of their concerns.
Following on from the response to these meetings, Ms Daly, Joan Collins, Mick Wallace and Luke ‘Ming’ Flanagan founded a group called Justice For All.
Justice4All will hold a protest will take place outside Tullamore Garda Station from 12 noon to 3pm today.

Luke ‘Ming’ Flanagan spoke to Midlands 103FM earlier, to explain why the protest is taking place in Tullamore.
“Our offices have been contacted by more people from this general area than any other area so we thought that it would be an appropriate garda station to hold the protest outside. And this isn’t about having a go at guards. This is about trying to bring about accountability so that the majority of good, decent, hard-working gardaí can actually get on with their job.”
