An Garda Síochána is investigating online threats made against a Garda member working in Dublin.

The threats were made after the St. Frederick's eviction protest. The garda in question was allegedly threatened with a bullet to the head.

He was one of the gardaí wearing ski masks on the night of the protests.

The threats were made after six people were arrested.

In a statement, the gardaí have said that "appropriate supports have been put in place by Garda management to protect the welfare and safety of the Garda member.

Speaking today, Commissioner Drew Harris said, "Threats and intimidation against Garda members who are only doing their job to keep people safe and uphold lawful order are completely unacceptable. I utterly condemn it."
