You wouldn’t want to be in a car with Joan Burton these days.
A large group of protesters brought traffic around Clondalkin, Dublin, to a halt this afternoon, when they attempted to block a vehicle in which Tanaiste Joan Burton was travelling.
Dozens of protesters surrounded Ms Burton’s 2013 car as she left a ‘Skills for Work Week’ event at Musgrave Retail Partners, just before noon.
A strong Garda detail was present as the vehicle was forced to stop, blocking all traffic behind it in the process.
The protesters chanted slogans, and it is understood Ms. Burton’s driver was able to get away at around 12:30.
