A man has been arrested at the entrance of a construction site in Clonmel, Co Tipperary.

Gardaí confirmed the arrest was made as construction workers moved into the site on Tuesday morning where modular homes are being built to accommodate refugees.


The man, aged in his 20s, was arrested for a public order offence.

Separately, Garda patrol vehicle was damaged at the site on Tuesday afternoon.

Investigations into the matter are ongoing.
