Nine water charges protesters have consented to the reactivation of a High Court injunction restraining them from unlawfully interfering with workers installing water meters in Dublin.

Proceedings to jail six of the nine protestors for contempt of court have been struck out. 

The injunctions were originally granted by the court amid claims that workers were being intimidated and harassed while attempting to install water meters in north Dublin.

Those injunctions against nine named protestors were lifted after they gave undertakings to the court not to engage in any unlawful activity.

However, GMC Sierra returned to the High Court earlier this week claiming that unlawful protests were still taking place.

After talks between both sides today, counsel for GMC Sierra Jim O Callaghan said the injunction could be granted on consent.

He also asked the court to strike out attachment and committal proceedings that had been entered against six of the defendants.
