There were road closures and traffic delays in Dublin city centre today as an anti-mask and anti-lockdown rally made its way through the city.

Around 1,000 people took part in the demonstration which was organised by a group called Yellow Vest Ireland.

It began at Custom House Quay at 1pm and made its way through the inner city.

Earlier an anti-facist protest took place on O'Connell Street which was calling for an end to Direct Provision and racism in Ireland.

In a statement issued to BreakingNews.ie, a garda spokesperson said: "Gardaí are attending to a protest in Dublin city centre this afternoon. Rolling road closures are being implemented as necessary and traffic diversions are in place."

In a later statement, gardaí said no incidents or arrests were reported during the march.

"We have no reports or any incidents or arrests related to the demonstration in Dublin city centre earlier today. The group involved gathered on Custom House Quay from approximately 1pm and proceeded from there to Government buildings. Rolling road closures were put in place to facilitate the safe movement of those involved and the flow of traffic in the city centre. The demonstration has since concluded and there are no traffic delays currently reported in the city centre," a garda spokesperson said.
