‘YELLOW VEST’ PROTESTERS attempted to block traffic for around an hour in Dublin this afternoon as part of the latest weekly demonstration by the group.

Around 70 demonstrators gathered outside the Department of Housing on Customs House Quay at around 2pm, when they were greeted by a small number of ‘anti-fascist’ protesters.
