Local TD believes Dáil protestors were seeking violent confrontation

Galway Bay fm newsroom – Protestors outside Leinster House yesterday were looking to provoke a violent confrontation.

That’s the opinion of Galway East TD Ciaran Cannon, after a number of politicians required Garda escorts to leave the building.

Politicians and staff were also verbally abused throughout the day, and 13 arrests were made as a result of the demonstrations.

The incident has been widely condemned, and security at Leinster House is to be reviewed as a result.

Speaking to Galway Talks, Fine Gael Deputy Cannon said the protest started out “reasonably civil” earlier in the day.
