Kildare Street is currently closed at the Molesworth Street junction due to the gathering.

Explaining what motivated him to attend the protest one man said: "To protect my grand children, because they're going to be loaded with a bill they had nothing to do with.”
While a mother said she was there because “there are a lot of families who are finding it dufficult to pay everything else, without having to pay this ridiculous charge.”
