Traffic is being disrupted in Dublin for the second time in a month this morning as truck drivers protest over fuel costs.

Organisers say it will last for 24 hours and that they plan to block Dublin Port. However reports this morning suggest the numbers involved this time around are smaller.

Posts on a page called the Irish Truckers and Haulage Association Against Fuel Prices say thousands of vehicles will be involved in today’s protest in the Capital. They say it will be different to the last rally in November and “a lot more effective”

They have asked drivers to bring an overnight bag with food and water as the action is planned to “last more than 24 hours”.

The Irish Road Haulage Association says the group’s tactics are “not the way to do business”. While Retail Excellence Ireland says the disruption to a key shopping day before Christmas will put livelihoods at risk in its sector.

Gardaí are urging people to cycle or walk today – or to take public transport if they can.
