Chaoitic scenes outside Coolock Garda Station, Dublin tonight (above) following the detention of three irish Water protestors this afternoon in Santry (Top video).
The two men and one woman were detained during The Taoiseach Enda Kenny’s earlier visit to Santry [for a meeting with Denis O’Brien], where anti-water charge protesters heckled him as he arrived. They have since been released and Gardaí say they are no longer at the station, however the protest continued.
Gardaí confirmed that a crowd gathered outside, and that the road by the station was closed for a time and diversions were in place.
Here at Coolock Garda Station, the protest has dispersed for tonight. Some alarming reports of mistreatment of citizens emerging.
