Up to 150 protesters gathered outside RTÉ this afternoon to demonstrate against the broadcaster’s coverage of water protests and of austerity.

The protest marched from outside Donnybrook Church to the main gate at the RTÉ campus at Nutley Lane, where they heard speeches.

Banners among the crowd included "Dublin Says No" and "Arklow says No".

Many of the protesters are planning to travel in a motorcade to the GPO where they will join a march to Mountjoy Prison.

Another protest billed as a community protest against the water charges gathered at the People's Park in Dun Laoghaire at 3pm, with around 100 people reported to be taking part.
