The anti-Islam group PEGIDA held a rally today on O'Connell Street to protest against refugees coming to Ireland.
At the same time on the other side of the street were the ‘anti-racist coalition’, who assembled in force to counter the Islamophobic demonstrators.
Suspecting there would be trouble, Gardaí blocked PEGIDA members in and refused to let them march. As you can see above, things are starting to erupt.
This is a crisis that's now starting to erupt onto the streets of Europe.
