TDs protest war activist’s imprisonment

A number of TDs have staged a protest outside the Dáil calling for the immediate release of activist Margaretta D'Arcy.

The 79-year-old anti-war activist from Galway was sentenced to three months in prison last month after she trespassed onto the runway at Shannon Airport.
