Scenes from the anti Irish Water protest outside Leinster House, Dublin
A female garda was knocked unconscious after being struck by a traffic cone and was brought to St James’ Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, a Garda spokesman said.
Two men were arrested during the demonstration, and former minister for justice Alan Shatter accused protestors of being “fascist” when his car was surrounded as he attempted to drive through the front gates of Leinster House in the early stages of the protest.
We spent some time outside the Dail today and observed Alan Shatter getting into his car and driving out through a protest at the gate no problem. He returned again within an hour knowing that the protest was there (pic above)
