Nine people are due in court after being charged in connection with protests at a refugee centre in south Dublin.

It brings to thirteen the number of people arrested at the premises in Ballyogan.

The five men and four women were arrested for public order offences at this new accommodation centre for International Protection applicants on the Ballyogan road yesterday evening.

It follows a number of incidents at the premises, including the entrance being blocked and staff being prevented from entering.

The nine arrested have since been charged and are due before Dun Laoghaire District Court this morning.

It comes after four men appeared in court yesterday in connection with public order offences at the centre earlier that day.

A garda was injured during the incident and received medical treatment.
