O’Connell Street, Dublin 1.
Protests in the wake of the death of Sarah Everard this afternoon in Dublin and Belfast and on Thursday in Cork, Limerick and Galway
“What I’d say is this: the pandemic has gone on for a year, it could go on for another year.
“Are people seriously suggesting that there should be no protests for the duration of COVID-19?
“Outdoor protests with people wearing facial coverings aren’t dangerous and it will be socially distanced.
“I think protests should be considered essential, there should be a derogation for protests to take place that are essential”.

Good preparation by @gardainfo – be under no illusion, the organisers of any ‘protests’ care little for the well-being of the Gardaí or those attending. They merely want to spread their toxic conspiracies & far right politics. https://t.co/WGRqCGisQb
