Violence in Dublin following ITGWU march
A number of arrests have been made in the area of Lombard Street and Westland Row following disturbances earlier. A parade by members of the ITGWU had been blocked by police as it passed the street and violence ensued.
Police, fearing a trap had been laid for them, baton-charged the crowd and, in one case, drew their revolvers in an attempt to control the crowd which was trying to prevent one of their number from being taken into custody.
Several persons were injured, included some innocent bystanders and policemen, one of whom was reported to have fallen from his horse. All of the injured were conveyed to hospital.
