Anti-vaccine protesters gathered on Sunday outside the home of Ireland’s chief medical officer Dr Tony Holohan.

The protest was "very modest" in size, with those in attendance carrying anti-Covid-19 vaccine placards, according to The Irish Times.

Gardaí attended the scene in Terenure, Dublin 6, for a period this afternoon when the small group of people remained outside the Holohan family home.

In response to queries, Garda Headquarters at Phoenix Park, Dublin, confirmed a protest had take place but made no reference to Dr Holohan.

“Gardaí were alerted to a number of protesters outside a residence in Dublin 6 this afternoon Sunday, 3rd October, 2021, at approximately 1pm,” it said.
