WATCH: Eoghan Murphy surrounded by protestors at election count centre
The Housing Minister was confronted by the angry crowd at the RDS in Dublin.
A bad week for Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy looks like it has continued to get worse, as an angry crowd surrounded him at a vote count centre in the RDS in Dublin.
Earlier this week, Murphy and others faced calls from other parties and TDs to resign, mostly in reaction to plans he referred to as "exciting", but which actually involved new housing developments that would see 41 residents use the same kitchen.
Murphy attempted to respond to the criticisms online, but it didn't go well.
And so, here we on, on Sunday 26 May, with a crowd chanting "Murphy! Murphy! Murphy! Out! Out! Out!", while staff around the building attempt to continue counting up this week's votes.
RTÉ News caught the moment in question:
Footage circulating on social media also shows the protestors calling for no more evictions and further specific calls for Eoghan Murphy to resign, while security and Garda at the scene attempt to maintain calm and control over the situation.
