The British Embassy is situated in Dublin 4 on the southside with an address of 29 Merrion Road.

He was arrested under a road traffic offence and is currently being held at Donnybrook Garda Station.

There was a slight bit of damage done to the gates but despite the incident, nobody was majorly injured in the attack on the embassy.
