  • Extended description

    In an interview for RTÉ News, demonstrator Ciarán McKeown talks about the previous day's march and admits to the difficult choices faced by the students when confronted with the police and the Paisleyites.

    McKeown talks about the lack of organisation at the demonstrator and the need to make a clearer plan. McKeown also describes yesterday's police decision to stop their march from going to city hall as an "extreme provocation". McKeown says that future demonstrations will continue to be peaceful.
