Thousands attend Anti-Water charges protests in Dublin


Thousands of people have attended a march through Dublin city centre in a protest against water charges. According to organisers it is estimated that up to 100,000 people are taking part.

Although the gardaí are estimating the attendance at up to 30,000. The Majority Protesters assembled at Parnell Square before marching down O’Connell Street towards Dáil Éireann on Kildare Street.

It is understood that they will then return to O’Connell Street for speeches outside the GPO.

As a safety measure gardaí will close O’Connell Street northbound, traffic on the north quays will be diverted on to Eden Quay or across O’Connell Bridge. 
Although the Luas Red Line services are running at the moment from  Tallaght/Saggart to Smithfield only. However there is no service between Smithfeild and The Point/Connolly. Also the Luas Green Line is operating normally. Gardai say O’Connell Street will only re-open when the demonstration has finished.
