This afternoon.

Dublin City centre.

Scenes from today’s clash between supporters of anti-Islam group Pegida Ireland, anti racist protestors and gardaí.

Irish Times reports:

Scuffles broke out when a small party broke away from the main gathering of anti-Pegida demonstrators and chased another group, believed to be Pegida supporters, down North Earl Street and into a discount store.

Members of the Garda Public Order Unit, approaching from Talbot Street, baton charged protesters outside the shop back towards O’Connell Street and then set up a cordon in the middle of North Earl Street.

RTÉ is to make a formal complaint after a senior staff camerman was injured “by a garda”. Laura Fitzgerald, communications manager for RTÉ news and current affairs, said “one of our cameramen was injured while working covering a demonstration and he was injured by a garda”. She said the camerman was receiving medical attention.


Ah here.

The Creme Egg café in Soho, London

Cadbury is eggstremely eggcited to announce that the Crème de la Creme Egg Café is coming to Dublin. Opening on Tuesday, February 16, the café nestled within Lock 6 on Canal Road, Dublin 6, will be a gooey haven for all Creme Egg lovers!

Each day the café will serve up a bespoke tasting menu of goo-geous Creme Egg treats including our Creme Egg Toastie, quirky entertainment and some egg-sciting special guest performers! But like all goo-d things it must come to an end – the Creme Egg café will open for a limited time only from Tuesday, February 16, until Saturday, February 20, with a number of sittings available daily. Entry to the cafe is free; but spaces are limited per sitting and booking is recommended as there is a very limited availability for walk-ins.

But isn’t that during LenNOMNOMNOMNOMNOM…

Olivia Kelly, in The Irish Times, reports:

“No newly built apartments or houses are available to buy in Dublin city centre, new figures reveal. Numbers recently compiled by the four Dublin local authorities show that of 56 newly built housing schemes currently on sale in Dublin city and county, only 15 have homes available for less than €300,000 – the Coalition’s “starter homes” threshold.”
