Six people have been arrested on North Federick Street in Dublin at the site of a protest by housing action group, Take Back the City.
A number of people occupying a house were evicted under an order from the High Court.
Gardaí said a large crowd gathered during the eviction and they arrested the six people for breaches of the peace under the Public Order Act.
The housing action group has claimed that one person is in hospital.

The property on North Frederick Street was taken over by a group last month.
It followed a 10-day occupation of a building at Summerhill Parade a short distance away which ended after the High Court ordered protesters to leave.

Those involved in the demonstrations have argued that houses should not be allowed to sit vacant during the housing crisis.
