Share this article


19 people were arrested in Dublin during a second consecutive night of tension and unrest in the city centre.

Large crowds again gathered in the city centre last night.

Gardaí say the ‘vast majority’ socialised in a positive way with a “very good atmosphere”.

However, a small group of around 200 young people is being blamed for “persistent antisocial behaviour and public disorder”.

Glass bottles are said to have been thrown at gardaí in areas such as South William Street and Temple Bar.

Gardaí equipped with riot gear closed off several major streets as they dispersed crowds.

The force says no batons were used at any time, describing their response as “measured and considered”.

Two gardaí are said to have been injured over the course of the evening, with a Garda vehicle also damaged in Temple Bar Square.

One other person - who gardaí say was not a member of any group involved in public disorder incidents - was assaulted and taken to hospital.

In a statement, the force said: “In total, 19 people were arrested for public order offences in Dublin City Centre, including two juveniles who were released and referred for Juvenile Diversion Programme. Six persons received the Adult Caution, one person was released pending a summons for public order offences, while 10 people were charged with public order offences and will appear in court at a later date."

It follows similar scenes in the city centre on Friday evening.
