The Taoiseach was confronted by a small number of protestors in Waterford this morning.

A number of the protestors jumped on the bonnet of his car as he arrived at Eishtec in the city.

Fianna Fáil woes

Meanwhile, Fianna Fail leader Micheál Martin has been met with angry protestors during a visit to Crumlin in the Dublin South Central constituency.

Mr Martin, who was visiting the offices of local candidate Catherine Ardagh, was heckled by members of the Right 2 Change movement.

As Micheál Martin and his entourage attempted to leave the village, their car was blocked in by the protestors for a short time.

Planned visits to local shops were cancelled as a result of the demonstration.
