Road closures to remain in place on Thursday morning due to farmer protest

Commuters, take note.

Gardaí have warned motorists that there will once again be severe traffic delays in and around Dublin city centre on Thursday.

A "large scale protest" is set to take place for a second consecutive day on Thursday, with Gardaí warning that there may be "increased protest activity".

The protest is a continuation of the most recent farmer protest that took place in Dublin on Wednesday, with farmers throughout the country taking to the capital to protest beef prices in Ireland. Over 60 tractors and more agricultural vehicles were parked up around St. Stephen's Green and Merrion Square overnight on Wednesday.

AA Roadwatch has warned about diversions in the following streets: Kildare St, Molesworth St, Merrion Square West, South, and East, St. Stephen's Green North and East and Merrion St Upper.

Cuffe St is also closed inbound at the Wexford St junction and eastbound traffic on Kevin St is being diverted up New Bride St.

There's also no right turn onto St Stephens Green from Leeson St inbound.

An Garda Síochana continue to advise commuters to plan their journey accordingly, or to use public transport where possible. They have also said that bus corridors will not be affected.

However, Bus Éireann has said that diversions are in place throughout the city - more information is available here, while Dublin Bus has also warned about diversions and delays.
