Chaos in Dublin….

Three injured so far, two civilians and journalist. It sounds like everyone has been taken by surprise on this occasion; including the Guards who appear not to have been prepared for this scale of violence. And it sounds like the mob force has been generated not simply by Republican Sinn Fein, but Anarchist groups and then coat trailing drawing in kids and teenagers. We’ve had a report of cars burning in Kildare Street, and another that PD offices has had windows broken and at least one ethnic minority family attacked. One attempt to hijack a bus was unsuddessful.
