The Transport Minister Paschal Donohoe has said any protest outside his house - or the homes of any politicians - is unacceptable.
Aer Lingus pensioners are due to hold a protest outside his home in Drumcondra, Dublin tonight over changes to their defined benefit pensions scheme.
Donohoe claimed he will not bend to public pressure.
He added that the plans for a protest this evening go too far.
“Targeting the home of any politician is absolutely unacceptable, but it will not play any role at all in influencing any decision that I make,” said Donohoe.
“I will not allow such behaviour to influence any such decisions that I make.”
