Anti-immigration protesters create traffic chaos at Dublin Airport

Garda arrived at the scene to arrange traffic diversions.

Anti-immigration protestors blocked roads coming in and out of Dublin airport this afternoon, creating large queues of traffic.


Dublin Airport warned of heavy traffic following the arranged protest, which was staged around the airport roundabout. Garda were present at the scene and some diversions were put in place. However, traffic came to a standstill as protesters continued to block off the road.

Passengers travelling to the airport were advised to allow additional time, with many forced to park their cars a distance away and walk to the airport in order to catch their flights.

Some videos emerged of passengers walking along the grass embankments next to the road towards the airport in order to reach the departures building.


At 4pm, the official Dublin Airport Twitter account then stated that protesters had moved on and traffic flows were returning to normal.


Irish Citylink, the bus service that operates throughout the country with various routes from Dublin Airport announced delays in its service following the protest.
