Not sure what’s going on but dame street has been closed to traffic from Christchurch end. We were waved on so I couldn’t ask.
Update: Michael adds: “Further to this the taxi driver got an alert saying that the street is closed due to a Garda incident. 2 Garda vans were parked outside the Bank of Ireland.”
Some anti austerity protesters occupying the Bank of Ireland on College Green. Parts of Dame Street, College Green, Molesworth Street and Kildare Street have been closed as marchers take part in the National Demonstration Against Austerity.
