Protestors disrupt Irish Water work; woman 'injured' in protest

Protests against the installing of Irish Water meters continued in Dublin today, with protestors claiming a woman was injured at one of the protests.

Demonstrators have posted YouTube clips of the protests today and one of them shows a woman being led away from Irish Water works going on in Raheny in Dublin.

The clip claims that Theresa Kelly had a plastic barrier "shoved into her" which resulted in "her falling violently to the ground".

They said that Ms Kelly was taken off in an ambulance and has been reported as "having a fractured elbow".

Another clip showed a protestor putting his foot next to a road digger while it drills a hole in the ground.

Protestors also disrupted Irish Water in Woodbine in the city.
