Gilmore condemns 'violent minority' of demonstrators15/04/2012 - 15:00:40
Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore has today condemned the protesters who clashed with gardaí at the Labour Party's annual conference in Galway yesterday.
Several hundred demonstrators broke through the security cordon in place at NUIG.
They did not gain access into the Bailey Allen Hall, which was locked down for a time.
Minister Gilmore also called on the Dáil deputies who were involved in the march to condemn those who acted violently.
"A minority acted violently, I condemn that," said Minister Gilmore.
"I think that the organisers of the protest, if they haven't already done so, should also condemn it.
"I think in particular the Dáil deputies, who were part of the organisation of the protest, I think that they should condemn the violent activity that took place here yesterday and I think that they should dissociate themselves from it."
