Around 200 protestors gathered outside the station following the arrest of three anti-water charge protesters earlier today.
The two men and one woman were detained during The Taoiseach Enda Kenny’s earlier visit to Santry, where anti-water charge protesters heckled him as he arrived.
They have since been released and Gardaí say they are no longer at the station, however the protest continued.
Gardaí confirmed that a crowd gathered outside, and that the road by the station was closed for a time and diversions were in place.
Protesters have alleged that gardaí have used pepper spray, but this could not be confirmed by An Garda Síochána.
More as we get it.
Protesters have now taken to blocking Malahide Road going both ways. pic.twitter.com/1Ysxo7UfcH— Mark_Coughlan (@Mark_Coughlan) November 5, 2014
