Further controversy last night as protesters block Tanaiste’s car


There was further controversy last night as members of the Gardaí were called in to clear protesters away from Tanaiste Joan Burton’s car in order to allow her leave a public meeting in Dublin.

It is understood that a small number of protestors gathered to  block the Tanaiste’s car after a referendum meeting in Whitehall in North Dublin last night, Gardai were called to intervene in order  to allow the car to leave. Gardai say around 30 protestors then engaged in a brief standoff with them which resulted in them being unable to leave the scene.

The protesters gathered as the Tanaiste Joan Burton was attending a meeting discussing the upcoming marriage equality referendum. Gardai say no one was injured in the protests.
