Two arrested over Dublin rioting


There was rioting in Dublin city centre

Two men have been arrested in connection with rioting in Dublin during a loyalist parade, Irish police have said.

The men, aged 19 and 20 years, were both arrested in Dun Laoghaire, a port outside Dublin on Saturday.

Trouble broke out on 25 February after republican protestors tried to stop a Love Ulster rally to remember the victims of republican violence.

A Garda press officer said the men were being detained at Store Street station.

During the trouble, Irish police and youths fought pitched battles along O'Connell Street and 41 people were arrested.

The rioting saw 21 Garda officers injured.

Retailers claimed they lost 10m euro in sales after shoppers fled the area.
