Ireland: “Yellow vest” protests in Dublin every Saturday

Ireland News Alert

“Yellow vest” protests to take place in Dublin every Saturday until December 31; associated disruptions expected

TIMEFRAME expected from 12/26/2018, 12:00 AM until 12/31/2018, 11:59 PM (Europe/Dublin). COUNTRY/REGION Dublin


Anti-government protests in support of the "yellow vest" movement are scheduled to take place in the capital Dublin every Saturday until Monday, December 31. Participants are likely to gather in the vicinity of Leinster House (parliament building). Associated transportation disruptions, along with a heightened security presence, are expected near the demonstrations.


A related protest took place near the parliament building on December 22, and reportedly passed off peacefully. This movement, inspired by the "yellow vest" protests in France, aims to denounce government policies and demand new reforms, notably on housing issues.


Individuals located in Ireland are advised to follow all instructions issued by local authorities, avoid all protests due to the risk of violence, and allow for extra time to reach their destinations.
