Hundreds of anti-mask protesters who attended a rally on Dublin's Custom House Quay marched across the city centre to Grafton Street, where they staged a sit down protest and chanted "no more lockdown" and "no more masks".

Some of the protesters chanted "take off your masks" as they marched up Grafton Street past shoppers and other pedestrians.

The protest was organised by members of the Yellow Vest Ireland organisation, which led demonstrators from Custom House Quay to Grafton Street and marshalled them for the sit-down protest.

Yesterday's event heard calls for people to have bodily autonomy when it comes to wearing of masks and any vaccine when it is developed.

Maeve Murran from Health Freedom Ireland said the group has no political agenda or affiliation and is open to everyone regardless of creed, ethnicity or political affiliation.

Earlier, around 150 people gathered at the GPO on Dublin's O'Connell Street for a protest which they say is to reclaim the GPO from the far right.

They said they stand in solidarity with frontline workers and said they chose the GPO because they are republicans and the association the building has with the leaders of 1916.
