Eleven people have been arrested for public order offences after a protest in Dublin city centre.
Gardaí had to intervene a number of times after the protestors gathered at O'Connell Bridge on Thursday afternoon, and later moved to East Wall Road and onto Grafton Street.
Protestors were told they were in breach of public health regulations a number of times and were asked to disperse.
Under the level five coronavirus restrictions, no organised outdoor gatherings should take place.
A small group then started to become involved in public disorder incidents on Grafton Street at around 5.30pm.
No-one was injured and the 11 people were held at Garda stations in Dublin.
The nine men and two women ranged in age from 20 years to 60.
Nine of those arrested have since been charged with public order offences and released on bail.
They are set to appear before the District Court next month.
Two of those arrested have been offered adult cautions.
Gardaí say members of the Public Order Unit were deployed in 'soft cap' mode at the protest in support of uniformed colleagues.
'Soft cap' means members in public order suits and baseball caps - rather then public order helmets, body pads and shields.
An investigation into the organisers of this protest is underway.
Gardaí say they have no role in permitting or authorising protest marches or gatherings.
