Sinn Féin members stage Bank of Ireland sit-in

Sinn Féin members are staging a sit-in at Bank of Ireland branches in Dublin and Cork this afternoon.

They are protesting at the bank's refusal to pass on interest rate cuts to mortgage holders.

They are arguing that the Government must stand up to the banks and force them to pass on the ECB rate cut of 0.25%.

More than 100 protesters were at the Bank of Ireland in O’Connell Street, Dublin.
