A man in his 30s has been charged in connection with a violent incident which took place at an anti-lockdown protest in Dublin on Saturday.

A second male (juvenile) was arrested this morning and is currently detained under Section 30 of the Offences Against the State Act, 1939 at a south Dublin Garda station.

The man, 30s, is due to appear before a sitting of Dublin District Court on Wednesday morning.

The man was arrested on Tuesday as part of an investigation into disturbances at the demonstration on Grafton Street in Dublin city centre.

At one point during the protest, fireworks were fired at a line of gardaí on Grafton Street, sparking a baton charge by the officers and clashes with some protesters.
