Protestors gather outside the home of Minister for Finance Paschal Donohoe

The Minister wasn't at home at the time.

Following similar protests outside the family homes of Ministers Simon Harris and Richard Bruton, protestors turned up outside the home of Minister of Finance Paschal Donohoe on Sunday afternoon.

In a Facebook post, the protestors made the following statement:

"Today we’re outside the home of failed finance minister Pascal Donohoe. Pascal has taking the blame for his incompetent friend Simon for the over spending in the children’s hospital, as Pascal has set his sights further a field as he’s no plans to run in the next election. Pascal also see the 1.25 billion profit by AIB as a standard tax we all know this to be bullshit."

However, Donohoe wasn't at home at the time, as he was attending the launch of the Government's new jobs policy in Dublin's CHQ building.

Upon hearing about the small group outside of his home, he promptly left the launch without taking questions from those in attendance.

Speaking to JOE, the Gardaí confirmed that they "attended the scene of a protest outside a house in Drumcondra Dublin 9 today the 10th March 2019 at approximately 1.30pm. Protestors have left the scene peacefully and enquiries will be carried out."
