Dublin Live: Cars, Luas and Dublin Bus set on Fire. Several shops Looted

A Luas and a Dublin Bus have been set on fire alight in the Dublin city centre.

The Luas was set in flames near The Gresham Hotel, while the bus was attached and then lit at the bottom of O'Connell Street.





Fireworks are also being set off and a number of gardaí have been attacked.

Specialist units have been deployed in Dublin tonight as gardaí try to control the situation.

The Garda Commissioner meanwhile has condemned attacks on officers and Garda cars as protests erupted in the capital this evening.

Drew Harris has appealed to everyone involved in the unrest to "go home" and for people not to listen to misinformation on social media.





Mr Harris said a “complete lunatic, hooligan faction driven by far-right ideology” is behind disorder in Dublin this evening.
