Protesters gathered outside the home of chief medical officer Dr Tony Holohan carrying anti-Covid-19 vaccine placards.
Gardaí attended the scene in Terenure, Dublin 6, for a period this afternoon when a small group of people remained outside the Holohan family home.
“Gardaí were alerted to a number of protesters outside a residence in Dublin 6 this afternoon Sunday, 3rd October, 2021, at approximately 1pm,” it said. “Gardaí attended and the protest ended without incident at 2.30pm.”
The protest, which was very modest in size, comes at a time when the vaccine take-up rate in the Republic has been one of the highest in the world as anti-vaccine campaigns have had little or no impact.
