Gardaí warn planned protest may lead to disruption for commuters


An Garda Síochána has warned that a planned protest due to take place on Monday may cause disruption to commuters.

The protest, which will begin tomorrow morning and could last a number of days, is being organised by a group which calls itself ‘The People of Ireland Against Fuel Prices’.

They said that once they are in “we stop and we do not move until our demands are met” and that the protest would be peaceful.

“We hope you all understand and we are sorry for the inconvenience caused in advance,” they added.

Cars, trucks, buses, vans, tractors and motorbikes are all expected to be used in the protest, which gardaí say will impact the motorway network heading into Dublin.

“Gardaí are aware of potential protest activity, particularly in the Dublin Region, tomorrow,” said a spokesperson. “This may impact early morning traffic particularly on the motorway network.”

They added that “commuters should plan accordingly” and that updated traffic information would be issued as required.
