A large crowd staged a protest outside Coolock Garda Station in Dublin earlier this evening following the arrest of three anti-water charge protesters.

They gathered outside the station following the arrest of anti-water charge protesters earlier today.

Protesters also blocked the Malahide road.

Three people were detained during Taoiseach Enda Kenny’s visit to Santry, where anti-water charge protesters heckled him as he arrived and later left.

The three people have since been released and gardaí say they are no longer at the station.
