Calm Returns to O'Connell Street


Irish Examiner, Feb. 25, 6:22 p.m. Dublin time:

O'Connell Street reopens after riot clean up

O'Connell Street is re-opening following today's riots which brought the city to a standstill.

The clean-up is underway with estimates about the damage running into hundreds of thousands of euro.

Charlie Lowe, Dublin City Council Area Manager said: "The area was quite well populated at around 5 o’clock", when all the rioters had dispersed.

"Generally, the fact that people are back on the street with the Garda co-operation indicates that everything is more-or-less returning to normal.
